VICTORY WILL LEAD TO PEACE.| THE RIGHT STRIPE| RICHMOND HAS FALLEN!

[Philadelphia? King & Baird? 1865]. Broadside, 7.5" X 9.5". Lithograph in red and blue. Illustrated with United States flag with 34 stars in the formation of a circle within a box; "The right stripe" is on a banner attached at the top of the flag pole. Minor dusting, Very Good.

The Official United States Flag contained 34 Stars only from 1861-1863. Kansas became the 34th State in 1861. West Virginia became Number 35 in June 1863. Richmond fell in early April 1865. But the creator of this of this broadside nonetheless illustrated it with 34 stars-- arranged in an unofficial, decorative order-- with the Original Thirteen in a circle surrounding the largest star in the field; and the others in a surrounding border, a square of six stars per side.
