Flagpole Hill

For many years, Old Glory flew over Camp Horseshoe from atop Flagpole Hill.  Each morning a pair of Scouts from one of the troops would raise the flag and then in the evening it would be lowered during the retreat ceremony.  Eventually the surrounding trees grew to a height where you could no longer see the flag from the rest of camp and the tradition ended.
