   36 CANTED STARS THAT TILT IN ALTERNATING SUCCESSION FROM ONE ROW TO THE NEXT, 1864-67, CIVIL WAR ERA:


 

Description:
36 star American national parade flag of the Civil War era, printed on coarse, glazed cotton. Note how the stars alternate in orientation on their vertical axis from one row to the next, tilting back-and-forth in succession from the 1:00 to the 11:00 position. The 36th state, Nevada, entered the Union during the Civil War on October 31st, 1864. The last Confederate general surrendered on May 26th, 1865. The 36 star flag became official on July 4th of that year, but makers of printed flags would have begun adding a 36th star to their flags in 1864, even before the addition of the new state occurred. Lincoln pushed Nevada through just 8 days before the November election. Nevada�s wealth in silver was attractive to a nation struggling with the debts of war and increased support for the Republican ticket. The 36 star flag was replaced by the 37 star flag in 1867, with the addition of Nebraska. Mounting: The poplar wood frame dates to the 1890's. The flag has been hand-stitched to 100% cotton, black in color, which has been washed to reduce excess dye. An acid-free agent was added to the wash to further set the dye and the fabric was heat-treated for the same purpose. Spacers keep the textile away from the glazing, which is U.V. protective glass.
