Large 40-star United States flag, denoting entry of the Dakotas into the Union. As North and South Dakota were added on the same day of 2 November 1889, the U.S. flag immediately jumped from 38 to 40 stars. The 40 star flag, however, was only in effect for six days, as Montana was added on 8 November. Large sewn flag measures 9'7'' x 5'10'' with the stars measuring approximately 5'' each. Body of flag is a coarse linen fabric, with the hoist made of canvas punctuated by four grommets. The canton at upper left is constructed of two 18'' pieces of bunting sewn together. A few small holes throughout, and light soiling. Edge has been hemmed, likely from wind damage. Overall very good condition. A rare, sewn 19th century period flag from the Dakotas.
