More on that 48-star flag

From this interesting page:

"The staggered 48 flag was produced in pretty fair numbers from 1912 at least up through the end of World War I. My grandfather came home from France with a 2x3 foot linen staggered 48 attached to a wooden staff, much like what anyone can buy today at your local school supply store in the states."



Field of Stars

The flag in the picture shows a different arrangement of the 48 stars as 6 offset rows of 8. Most 48 star flags show a uniform alignment.

Living in the past!

Somebody forgot to change the wall calendar for the new year!

Nice use of icons on the poster.
