When the Civil War began, the United States flag had 33 stars, one for each state of the union. After the battle of Ft. Sumter, President Lincoln had to decide whether to remove those of the states that seceeded. Since his mission was to preserve the Union, all of the stars remained.
Our authentic historical reproductions of flags from American history are popular with collectors or as part of patriotic displays. The historical flags are manufactured with the same high quality outdoor construction as our state and international flags. All historical flags are 3x5' or as marked. Larger historical flag sizes and designs are available upon request as a custom flag.
Flag is 3' x 5'
