Rare thirteen-star American Revolutionary Flag and Confederate 2nd National Flag of the Louisiana Guard Battery lots 1 & 2


 star American Revolutionary Flag


www.freemansauction.com 5

The Patton Family Not until its owner retired did he suspect he could have a treasure in his possession. It was something that was passed on to him in the early 1960's when time and interest where in short supply. As the great-grandson of Michael Patrick Patton (1870-1943), a draper and decorator of patriotic flag displays, he inherited a trunk kept in the family and forgotten for decades. An unusual flag was found among its contents. Patton, born to John and Catherine Patton of Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, worked at the Cardington Mills, a cotton cloth factory at nearby Cobb's Creek with most of his seven siblings. Their jobs included weaving, dying, piecing and picking, but at the time of his marriage to Julia Elizabeth Ruth in 1892, he is listed as a weaver. In the early part of the last century, he became involved in decorating buildings and large interiors such as those at Philadelphia’s Frankford Arsenal. In time, Patton’s great-grandson recognized one of the trunk’s items as an American flag, though not realizing its potential as an important piece of our history. He then began in earnest to verify that it was, indeed, from the 18thcentury. He first had it examined by S. Rabbit Goody, a nationally known textile historian. She concluded it was consistent both with 18th century sewing practices and construction of that era. It was then examined by the the major forensic lab McCrone Associates, Inc. whose 50 page report stated that the materials are consistent with the late 18th century. The present owner recently had it conserved and framed by a highly regarded textile conservator.


Nathaniel Ames This flag's unusual hand-written inscription is thought to have been made by Nathaniel Ames (1761-1863), born in Killingly, Connecticut. He joined the New London County Militia at the outbreak of the Revolutionary War and, as a 17-year-old, helped in the building of Fort Griswold in Groton, Connecticut. He later joined the Connecticut Continental Army and served under Washington at Morristown during the harsh winter of 1780. Ames went on to join the crew of a 16-gun brig and privateer, Marquise de Lafayette, and traveled to Holland and the West Indies, returning home in mid 1783. At the end of that year, Ames signed onto another merchant ship sailing to Bermuda—this time under an English captain. On the voyage home, the ship was captured and taken to Bermuda where the crew was thrown in prison for three months. It is during this captivity that Ames most likely signed and dated the flag. It is also possible that he was impressed (forced to serve) onto a British ship for three more years at sea. The flag itself is a wonderful revelation of science, history and geography. The red dye has been identified as cochineal, and the blue dye as “Prussian” blue—both in common use in England and North America by the end of the 18th-century. The inscription ink was identified as thin Oriental smoke-black ink in a gelatin binder, probably mixed with sea water—also appropriate for the late 18th-century. An analysis of the fiber and dye content of the flag’s materials and ink inscription on the hoist has been completed and accompanies this lot.

Ames eventually became a farmer and Methodist minister in Oneida County, New York until the age of 75 when he then moved to a farm in Wisconsin. This flag is accompanied by photocopies of Ames’s pension records from the National Archives; correspondence relating to his years of military service; a number of accounts of his life, along with photographs and transcribed interviews with Ames from December 11, 1832 and June 28, 1833, recounting his Revolutionary War service. Also included is a photocopy of "A Sketch of the Life of Nathaniel Ames as Dictated by him, the R.P. Main , Oregon , Wis," and an article from The Saturday Globe, March 5, 1898. Nathaniel Ames died in Oregon, Wisconsin at the age of 102, making him the last serving revolutionary war soldier. From the hands of a Revolutionary War patriot and naval adventurer, to the possession of a Delaware County weaver and draper, to its years of “imprisonment” in a family’s trunk, this unique emblem of the United States is now poised to begin a new chapter in its long and rather circuitous route through Freeman’s to a new home.

1 Rare thirteen star American Revolutionary Flag Hoist inscribed, "natt. ames. of england, march. 26 1784", Comprised of blue wool canton with thirteen 5-pointed cotton stars in a 45-4 pattern appliqued on both sides, thirteen white and red wool stripes, cotton hoist, all hand-sewn with linen thread. 21 1/2 in. x 38 3/4 in. note: An analysis of the fiber and dye content of the flag materials and ink inscription on the hoist has been completed and accompanies this lot. The red dye has been identified as cochineal and the blue dye as Prussian blue, both in common use in England and North America by the end of the 18th century. The inscription ink was identified as thin Oriental smoke black ink in a gelatin binder, probably mixed with sea water-also appropriate for the late 18th century. $175,000-$250,000


Confederate 2nd National Flag of the Louisiana Guard Battery

Professor Alexander Dimitry (18051883).

Appomattox Court House, Virginia.

The Richmond Whig of August 18, 1864 reports that this “handsome battle flag” was presented to the Louisiana Guard Battery on August 17th, 1864, through Professor Alex Dimitry “by New Orleans ladies now residing in our city.” It was carried until the end of the war. This is the third flag of the Louisiana Guard Battery; the first was retired, and the second, captured in the battle of Rappahannock Ford, November 7, 1863. According to tradition, the night before General Robert E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox Courthouse, as artillery and accoutrements were surrendered to

Federal troops, the color bearer, Private William C. Ahern of New Orleans tore the flag from its staff and wrapped it around himself under his shirt. He successfully hid the flag during the surrender proceedings at Appomattox and during troop transport to New Orleans. Ahern continued to hide the flag fearing confiscation during the Reconstruction years. He eventually presented the flag to the Confederate Memorial Literary Society of Richmond, forerunner of the Museum of the Confederacy, in 1916. The flag remained on display there until 1956.

SILVER lots 3-37


Silver from the Macalester Family of Philadelphia Born in Scotland, Charles Macalester, Sr. (1765-1832) emigrated to the United States in 1786 and thereafter settled in Philadelphia. One of the leading merchant traders of his day, Macalester later retired and entered into the world of finance, acting as President of the Insurance Company of the State of Pennsylvania, director of the Bank of North America, founder of the Mariners Church of Philadelphia, and Vice President of the St. Andrew’s Society. Macalester’s son, Charles A. Macalester, Jr. (1798-1873) was born in Philadelphia and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania. He was a well-known businessman, broker, and leader in Philadelphia, having been appointed Government Director of the Second Bank of the United States and serving as President of the St. Andrew’s Society from 1864 until his death in 1873. An avid philanthropist, he founded many local organizations including Philadelphia Presbyterian Hospital, Macalester Presbyterian Church, and Macalester College in Minnesota. He acted as an advisor to eight U.S. presidents from Andrew Jackson through Ulysses S. Grant. In 1850, Macalester purchased land and property along the Delaware River upon which to build his summer home, a riverfront mansion he named, “Glengarry.” An example of Victorian elegance and tradition, Glengarry served as the sight of several events and gala affairs. Many important heads of state and dignitaries traveled to Glengarry to be guests of Mr. Macalester and his daughter, Mrs. Lily Macalester Laughton, a renowned Washington hostess married to a Belgium diplomat. Today, Glengarry (now called Glen Foerd) is a historic mansion listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Glen Foerd Mansion, Philadelphia.

The Bonaparte Family Silver Wine Coaster The likely mate to the Bonaparte Family wine coaster exhibited in Uncorked! Wine, Objects & Tradition (2012-2013), Winterthur Museum, Wilmington, Delaware. See fig. 1. Rejected by Emperor Napoleon I after marrying his youngest brother Jerome in 1803, Elizabeth “Betsy” Patterson Bonaparte (1785-1879) returned from Europe to her hometown of Baltimore, Maryland in 1805 with only her newborn son, Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte (18051870). Though abandoned by her husband, Betsy refused to let American society forget her Imperial alliance, emblazoning the Bonaparte Family coat-of-arms on her carriage and other items. Samuel Kirk & Son, who advertised in New York Magazine as having provided the service used at the wedding of Jerome and Elizabeth, fashioned silver for Betsy bearing the Bonaparte Crest. Such pieces include this wine coaster; the wine coaster at Winterthur; a tea service;

and a repousse sugar dish and covered tureen currently in the collection of the Maryland Historical Society (MdHS). Though it remains unclear as to who commissioned this wine coaster, it bears the same coat-of-arms seen on other pieces commissioned by Betsy. Given the hallmark, it could have been ordered by any member of the Bonaparte family living in Baltimore from 1868-1896, including Betsy who, in 1834 after sojourns in Europe, returned to Baltimore and lived there until her death in 1879. Betsy’s tradition of heraldic display was adopted by her son, Jerome, who, like his mother, was reported to ride around in a coach decorated with the Crest. Furthermore, Jerome amassed quite a collection of Napoleona, which he passed along to his son, Charles Joseph Bonaparte (1851-1921). Although Charles Joseph took much greater pride in promoting his American, rather than European,

Courtesy, Winterthur Museum, heritage, he kept all these inherited relics and collectibles in his Baltimore Home in a room appropriately dubbed “The Bonaparte Room” (see fig. below). He presumably acquired additional items directly from Betsy (the soup tureen at MdHS is listed as having been made for Betsy but bears his

monogram) and may have received the two wine coasters in honor of his marriage to Ellen Channing Day of Newport, RI, in 1875. Upon Betsy’s death in 1879, her estate of 1.5 million dollars was bequeathed to Charles Joseph and his brother, Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte II (1830-1893).

Walker Keith’s brother, George Armistead (1780-1818) fought in the War of 1812, commanding Forth Mchenry during the Battle of Baltimore-the battle that ultimately inspired Francis Scott Key’s writing of The Star Spangled Banner.

She was devoted to transforming Washington D.C. into a cultural center and to making art accessible to all; consequently, she turned her home, The Barney Studio House by architect Waddy B. Wood, into a gathering place for artists. Defying expectations, Barney became very well known for her eccentric lifestyle, lively art salons, unusual family and scandalous relationships.
