    U.S.S. Lafayette: Large 36-Star Naval Flag.
    9' x 16' 36-star wool flag with 36 appliqued stars on both sides of the canton. Rope loops in the sleeve. The stripes are machine stitched while the stars and the panels comprising the canton are hand-stitched. The hoist is inscribed "Lafayette 1862-1865 Cairo, IL. Miss. 1863 -Vicksburg Capt.
