Front Porch Campaign flag

One of my favorite artifacts in the Campaigns and Cartoons exhibition is the a flag from the Front Porch Campaign.

The database said the flag was from the famous Front Porch, but I was speechless when I was able to identify the flag in a photo from our collection!

Because the flag is homemade, the stars are placed in a unique pattern on the blue field.  If it had been a "standard issue" flag, it would have been next to impossible to authenticate it!

Here are some photos from the exhibition:
