36 Star Flag With 19 Stripes

36 Star Flag With 19 Stripes. Beautiful antique Civil War era 36 Star Flag made of silk. Frayed and torn but still a beautiful work of art with lots of character. This flag appears to have been through the works. Very rare flag to have 19 stripes. The colors have been stenciled onto pure white silk. The stars are slightly tilted to give them a unique look. Civil War flags still size are rare especially made of silk as silk was very expensive back then to own. Also flags this size are also known to be called Bible Flags. The 36 Star Flag was voted into the Union in October 1864 at which time flag makers stopped making 35 star flags which are now out of date and started making the new 36 star flags. Some so-called flag experts seem to think flag makers did not start making 36 star flags till July 4th 1865 when the 36 star flag became official which is total nonsense.
