Our Flag  1864

by Frederic Edwin Church

Church painted panoramic vistas of scenes from New England to South America, but in this canvas he offers a symbolic image of America during the Civil War. The 31-star flag of the Union flutters amidst the smoke of battle as a symbol of Church's belief in the eventual triumph of the Union.
