Another Brief Version of the Flag Story

Notes for Albert Benjamin Smith

[Brøderbund WFT Vol. 3, Ed. 1, Tree #5532, Date of Import: Jan 22, 2002]
Albert once climbed the Plaza Flagpole, under fire, and attached the American Flag. Later, he again climbed the pole to untangle the American Flag and drew fire from Mexican sympathizers who were occupying the Presidio.
He was well respected, and an adventurous person.
