1876 WASHINGTON PATRIOTIC 39 STAR FLAG BANNER THREADS OF HISTORY #376

As any hardcore collector of political textile knows, those historic items listed in the Smithsonian's "Threads of History" book are highly sought. This patriotic George Washington banner is listed as number 376 on page 188. It has about all the historic references one could hope to find in a textile produced during our nation's hundredth anniversary year. Washington in his military uniform is between two shields inscribed "Shield of U.S. America." He is pointing to a scroll with the message "Washington/victory is ours/ Paul Jones." And above his head is the Liberty Bell. See photos for detail of Banner.

Banner: 25" x 17" (H x L)
