Offered is a Battle of Gettysburg 50th Anniversary souvenir pennant.  The pennant has a blue field with a Union soldier and a Confederate soldier shaking hands, and each soldier is holding his respective flag.  The 50th Anniversary celebration was held in 1913 from June 29th to July 4th, and over 50,000 veterans attended.  All honorably discharged veterans who were members of either the Grand Army of the Republic, or of the United Confederate Veterans were invited to attend.    

Conservation Process: This pennant was hand sewn to cotton fabric, and both were hand sewn to a mounting board.  To prevent the black dye in the cotton fabric from seeping into the pennant, it was first washed in a standard wash and then in a dye setting wash.  The pennant is positioned behind a UV resistant acrylic, and spaced apart therefrom using spacers.  The frame is gold in color and highly distressed.  

Condition Report: This pennant has some minor staining and fading, but overall is in very good condition and presents wonderfully.  

Collectability Level: The Good – Perfect for Beginning Collectors and Gifts  
Date of Origin: 1913
