Ward's Battalion Lone Star Flag - 1836
This flag was made by eighteen year-old Joanna Troutman for a battalion of Georgia boys headed to Texas under the command of Capt. William Ward. It was first flown about the American hotel in Velasco in January of 1836.
Ward's Battalion brought the flag to Goliad, where Col. Fannin hoisted it as the national flag when he received news independence had been declared. Ward and most of his men were killed in the Goliad Massacre.

The paper is acid free, cold press cotton watercolor with an elegant ever-so-lightly-textured finish. This surface allows the inks to 'bite', reproducing the shading and tonality of the original map vividly, beautifully, and exactly.
The inks are guaranteed color-fast for 80 years, which means you won't need to lay out the extra money for UV glass. You can hang your map in direct sun and it will be just as bright when they are passed on to the next generation it is the day it ships.
It's an instant heirloom. Get yours before they're gone...and get one to give to a friend. He'll owe you!
