    Ceremony of the re-raising of the United States flag at Fort Sumter

    The Program for the Re-raising of the United States Flag on Fort Sumter Together With Two Photos of the Ceremonies - Brought Back by Lt. Colonel John B. Conyngham. The two photos, each measuring approximately 3" x 3", are unmounted albumens and are identified on the verso in pencil. The first is marked, "Interior of Ft. Sumter Pr. 14, 1865 H.W. Beecher delivering the oration on the occasion of raising the old flag." The second photo: "Interior of Ft. Sumter April 14, 1865 pending the ceremony of raising the old flag."

    The program was "Printed at 'The New South Office', Port Royal, S.C." It measures 5" x 8" and is 4 pages. It begins with a prayer by Rev. Matthias Harris, then several readings from scripture, singing of the "Star Spangled Banner", an address by Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, the doxology, and a closing prayer and benediction. In very fine condition, with a few tiny spots of foxing mentioned only for accuracy.

    A scarce printing and remembrance as we celebrate the 150th Anniversary!
