    Description

    Winfield Scott: Pictorial Campaign Handkerchief. Wonderful, excessively rare campaign textile for the 1852 Whig. It measures 14.5" x 14.5". Published by George Adams of Massachusetts. The floral border lists the "Presidents of the United States" including "1853-Scott-1857". Scott is featured above another cut showing the Capitol, State Seals and a display of flags. The caption below Scott's portrait leaves no doubt as to the purpose of this artifact: "Triumphant in War, yet the constant advocate of Peace. Ever victorious over his country's foes, his courage has only been exceeded by his humanity; the Nation will not fail to honor the man whom even its enemies cannot reproach." The back side is printed with a nursery rhyme: "Old Mother Hubbard." Scattered ink stains, some of which have created small holes, more pronounced on the back side. The Scott side displays rather well.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
