19th Century Forty Four Star Medallion Parade Flag
- This is an original medallion or wreath pattern parade flag. This is a star pattern that is seen primarily between the Civil War, 1861 - 1865 and then again at when the Nation was celebrating the centennial of independence in 1876. Medallion star patterns are extremely rare in flags with greater than 38 stars. Prior to becoming a state, the Wyoming Territory became famous as the first government in the world to grant woman the right to vote. Because of this fact, Congress initially rejected Wyoming’s application for statehood. On July 10th, 1890, President Harrison signed the bill to make Wyoming the 44 state.
