The Pecking Order For Stars On The Flag

At times I forget that there is a pecking order in the position of the stars on the American Flag.  The 1917 article below discuss the positions of the stars and what state they represent on the old 48 star flag. Of course Delaware is first.  To show how old I am my children are not aware there was anything but 50 star flags.

The 50 star flag shown below represent Alaska and Hawaii in the last two positions
