Historical Americana Photos Flags & Ephemera
American history can be viewed through a variety of avenues but few of these windows can intimately portray it like the daily photography and ephemera produced for the common citizen. Patriotism was in a fervor as seen in the printed fabric depicting Mexican American War hero (and 12th U.S. President) General Zachary Taylor mounted on his horse alongside soldiers. The "Great Flower" or "Great Star" U.S. flag demonstrates flag design creativity at it's best during an era in which the government had not yet issued regulated standards for our national standard. African American, Native American, sports, sideshow, medical anomalies, political campaigns and many more topics are represented in this sale.
