General Joshua L Chamberlain funeral memorial reception flag. This small 3.5" X 5 3/4" cotton-gauze hand-held flag dates to 1890 (42 stars). It remains in excellent condition overall with vivid red, white and blue colors, still attached to the original wooden stick. Stenciled in black on the flag is "MOUNTFORT POST 22". This was the G.A.R. home post of General Joshua L Chamberlain- commanding hero of the 20th Maine at Gettysburg Little Round Top. As the accompanying letter of provenance states, these flags were used by G.A.R. Mountfort Post 22 members during the February 26,1914 funeral procession of General Chamberlain. Truly a wonderful memento of this Gettysburg hero.
