Monumental Civil War era 34-star American flag constructed of linen with applique, hand-sewn stars. Canvas hoist with a metal Inglefield clip, top, and a rope loop, bottom, sewn along the left side. Approximately 114" H x 205" W. Note: "The United States National 34-Star flag was adopted with the admission of Kansas as the 34th state in January 1861. It was used until 1863 when West Virginia became a state. At no time did the national flag lose stars. Since the United States believed that secession from the Union was illegal, the flag continued to bear the stars of all the states of the Union, even the Southern states."
