U.S. Flag With 34 Stars Representing the Addition of Kansas as the 34th State in 1861 — Measures 9′ Long — Scarce

United States flag featuring 34 stars, representing the addition of Kansas as the 34th state, admitted into the Union on 29 January 1861. This flag flew during the Civil War, from 1861 until June 1863, when West Virginia broke from Virginia and was declared her own state. Although several variations of the 34-star flag were made, this design — with concentric circles of stars accentuated by four corner stars — would prove one of the most popular. Linen and cotton flag is hand-stitched with stars appearing on both sides. Measures 108” x 70.5” or 9′ x nearly 6′. Some age discoloration, light soiling and small holes throughout. Larger tear of approximately 2” to lower left where flag connects to band. Overall in very good condition considering age, with no substantial defects or loss of material. A scarce Civil War era United States flag. Sold for $7,500.

Sam Houston Autograph Letter Signed as Texas Senator — Houston Lectures in the North on Slavery

Sam Houston autograph letter signed, dated 9 January 1852 as Senator from Texas. From Washington, Houston writes to Riva Griffith Owen referencing a series of lectures he gave across the North in early 1852 regarding slavery, in part: ”My Dear Sir, I expected to be in New York on the 18th Feby, and intended to be at Phila and Lecture, on my way, neither going, or returning…I fear it will not be in my power, on the 27th Inst. I hope February will do? You can write to me + say…I am truly / your Friend / Sam Houston”. In these 1852 lectures, Houston advocated for compromise regarding the expansion of slavery. He argued against the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, correctly believing it would lead to war, borne out in ”Bleeding Kansas” of the late 1850s. Single page letter measures 7.5” x 9.25”, handsomely framed in black and gold with an engraving of Houston, measuring 21.5” x 16.25” in total. Minimal foxing, otherwise near fine with bold writing. Sold for $3,781.
