The Culpeper Flag is a white flag with an American rattlesnake in the middle over the words "Don't Tread on Me." The words "The Culpeper Minutemen" are in a banner over the top of the snake and Patrick Henry's famous words "Liberty or Death" are to the sides of the snake.
The Culpeper Flag was first used in 1775 and is a variation of the Gadsden Flag was carried by the Culpeper Minutemen from Culpeper County, Virginia. The men were part of Colonel Patrick Henry's 1st Virginia Regiment. This is one of the few American Revolution Flags that we can say with certainty was truly carried in the Revolutionary War.
