It originated in the 16th Century. English archers held the arrow with their first two fingers and French archers held the arrow with their middle finger. When they were captured they would have these "arrow" fingers cut off. So when they saw each other they wold hold up these fingers to show they were still able to fire arrows. In England when you want to taunt someone you hold up the "two-fingered salute" In USA for some reason they adopted the French middle finger.
