OUR COUNTRY'S FLAG.

Click for image enlargement
An example typical of the rash of patriotic Unionist prints exalting the American flag, that appeared at the outset of the Civil War. (See also nos. 1861-19 through 1861-21.) "Our Country's Flag" is a handsomely drawn illustration appearing on a sheet music cover for a song composed by G. Gumpert, and dedicated to President Lincoln.

A Union soldier stands before an encampment, holding the staff of a large American flag. To the left is a tripod of rifles and visible beyond are a sentry, several tents, and a cannon. On either side of the central scene is a trophy of military implements.
