1881 Scarce James Garfield Funeral Train Flag

SKU: EP3006

Availability: In stock

$195.00

Quick Overview

Memorial flag. We believe they were produced right after the assassination of President James Garfield during the events surrounding his memorial and funeral. The ancestors of the owner were railroaders and this item, along with three others, were found in an attic in Cleveland Ohio where President Garfield was buried. So we believe these fabric flags were related to the funeral train that brought the President's body from Wasington, D.C. to Cleveland, Ohio, his final resting place.

At each stop along the way, and particulary in Cleveland, crowds gathered to greet the train and pass their last respects. Original, there is background water staining and frayed edges
