    Description

    William Henry Harrison: 1840 Political Campaign Flag. This rare cotton flag measures 24.5" x 25.5" with Harrison's portrait in the center and his classic campaign slogan "The Hero of Tippecanoe". Long considered by political collectors as the most desirable of Nineteenth Century political items, flags of this quality rarely come on the market. The flag has normal fading to the red stripes and image of Harrison, due to the dye used. The blues remain strong and vibrant. There is some loss to the upper right corner and some period stitched repairs to the blue field. There is slight loss to Harrison's right shoulder. These cotton flags were used at campaign events in all types of weather. This flag shows honest wear commensurate with age and use.
