When Count Pulaski fell at Savannah in 1779, the banner was saved by his first lieutenant and afterwards delivered to Col. Bentalou, of Baltimore, then a captain in Pulaski's legion. It was used in the procession which welcomed lafayette to this city in 1824, and then deposited in Peale's museum. In 1844, Mr. Edmund Peale presented it to the Maryland Historical Dociety." [P. 48.]
