Description

Civil War officer's folding camp chair. The wooden chair frame has been painted black. The back of the chair folds down, and the legs fold together making the chair easy to store and move. The fabric seat features navy-blue, red, yellow, light-green, and cream pile in a multicolored stripe and floral design. The chair is held together by metal screws and nails that have been painted black to match the wood. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
