VERY FINE. A WONDERFUL COMBINATION OF TWO DIFFERENT 7-STAR CONFEDERATE PATRIOTIC DESIGNS, INCLUDING THE RARE "SOUTHERN RIGHTS" BANNER DESIGN ON LETTERSHEET.
Although the concept of States' Rights is referred to in verses on Patriotic covers, this is the only flag design which incorporates the words "Southern Rights." It was published by T. S. Whitaker of Wilmington N.C., who also published Confederate songs, including "The Stonewall Quickstep" by John H. Hewitt.
Ex Antrim. Accompanied by another letter dated in 1863 -- we are not sure if there is any connection, but it was present when the Kilbournes bought the cover from Earl Antrim. The C.S.A. Catalog does not list the F7-9 design on a lettersheet
VERY FINE. THIS ALLEGORICAL RIVER SCENE IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL CONFEDERATE PATRIOTIC DESIGNS. THE MATCHING GREEN ON GREEN LETTERSHEET, WITH GOOD WAR CONTENT, MAKES THIS A HIGHLY EXHIBITABLE PAIR.
The verse on this design is particularly fervent, with a very questionable sentiment. It reads, "Death to each marauding band, who would defile this glorious land-- The white and black man's Dixie! For e'en our slaves would take a hand To drive the foe from Dixie!"
VERY FINE. THIS ALLEGORICAL RIVER SCENE IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL CONFEDERATE PATRIOTIC DESIGNS.
