William Henry Harrison (1773-1841)
Campaign Rally Banner
8 1/2" ht, 14 1/2" l
Harrison banners from the 1840 campaign are extremely rare, and this folk art banner is no exception. On the reverse, you can see a sleeve where a stick would go through in order for it to be carried in a parade or rally. Harrison & Reform was a famous slogan from the campaign and could be found on china, banners, flags, and everyday objects issued by the campaign.
