All, New member waynepoe asked for some help in posting a query about this flag: The flag: This flag has 32 stars that are arranged in a circular pattern. The flag material appears to be of canvas and the stars and striped either stamped or printed on the canvas. It measures about 40 X 22 and was attached to a wooden staff when I obtained it about 50 years ago. History: This was one of three flags that were found in an old farm house in southwestern Ohio. The rumor was that this house had previously been owned by a General in the Union Army. I have tried to research its history but have not felt very confident about the results. One story was that it was Probably a banner and not a flag and that it was possible that it was used during parades or other festivities that may have been popular in the 1850s or 1860s. Photos: Attached please find two photos of flag/banner. Thanks in advance for any information and history that you might be able to collect with regards to this old relic.
