Description

April 14, 1917, 8 days after Congress decides to enter World War I. A crowd gathers in Mill Park for the raising of 3 flags purchased by employees of the American Woolen Mills on West Canal Street in Winooski. One was raised in front of Mill No. 3, which later housed Forest Hills Factory Outlet, and also the Champlain Mill and the mill office. Horse drawn wagons can be seen as well as police or military personnel on horseback (the National Guard Company G was present that day, according to the Burl. Free Press, April 16, 1917). This photo (no. 5 of five), which shows McAllister's inscription, is the right end of a panorama and creates a panoramic view when placed together.
