    Spectacular Large Flag From Teddy Roosevelt's 1900 Vice Presidential Campaign
    This famous reunion was one of the highlights of the 1900 campaign. Roosevelt played up his Spanish American War fame to the hilt, and many of his campaign items pictured him in his Rough Rider uniform. He enjoyed wide and highly visible support from his former Rough Rider comrades. "Teddy's Terrors" was an organization of mounted supporters who staged dramatic appearances at various campaign rallies and events. The Oklahoma City confab, nominally a reunion, was in reality a giant, four-day TR rally. It occasioned the production of several desirable pinback buttons, but this is the only flag we have ever encountered from the event. Overall display appearance is Excellent. There is minor edge roughness at the top, and a couple of trivial 2" separations at stress points where the fabric joins the original stick. Light soiling on the right side is typical of this type of item: like several similar examples in this catalog, it was stored rolled, with this end loosely exposed to soiling or wear. However, as the catalog photo shows, this item has very pleasing display presence, with the minor imperfections serving only to impart a little sense of age and "character." 34 1/2" x 19 1/2", on the original 33" stick. Just a super showpiece for this popular president, looking one of his most enduring images.
