36 star American Parade Flag Civil War Era

36 STAR ANTIQUE AMERICAN PARADE FLAG OF THE CIVIL WAR ERA, WITH BOLD COLOR, 1864-67, NEVADA. Flag Size (H x L): 11.5 x 18. 36 star American national flag of the Civil War era, printed on coarse, glazed cotton.

The 36th state, Nevada, entered the Union during the Civil War on October 31st, 1864. The last Confederate general surrendered on May 26th, 1865. The 36 star flag became official on July 4th of that year, but makers of printed flags would have begun adding a 36th star to their flags in 1864, even before the addition of the new state occurred. Lincoln pushed Nevada through to statehood on October 31st, 1864, during the Civil War, and just 8 days before the November election. The territorys wealth in silver was attractive to a nation struggling with the debts of war and so increased support for the Republican ticket. While the 36th star wasn't officially added until July 4th of the following year, the makers of printed flags are known to have begun adding the 36th star as early as July of 1864, several months before the addition of Nevada actually occurred.

This was a common practice during the late 19th century and is reflective of both the nation's desire for Westward Expansion and the hope of flag-makers to bring new star counts to market before their competitors. The 36 star flag was officially replaced by the 37 star flag in 1867, following the addition of Nebraska. This flag is in excellent condition with a few small stains shown in the photographs. The flag is extremely desirable as it is the perfect size to frame and display. The item "36 star American Parade Flag Civil War Era" is in sale since Sunday, June 10, 2018.
