Description

This embossed, colored postcard features the 48-star American flag placed over a scene of boats on water. A circular-shaped, head-only portrait of President Abraham Lincoln clipped from another publication is pasted to the upper right corner of the image. Below the image is a verse that reads: "O flag born of the spirit. And the blood our fathers shed; We have no fear while thy bright stars And bars wave overhead." The postcard reverse is divided. "Patriotic Series No. 252" is printed along the left edge. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
