46 stars and lots of stripes

How long ago was the United States made up of 46 states? According to this site it was 1908! This flag may date back to that time because it was brought back from there by my grandfather in 1929 or the early 1930′s.

I must say thanks to my Uncle Ray for bringing that flag along to a family get-together tonight!
