It was something that was passed on to him in the early 1960'swhen time and interest where in short supply. As the great-grandson ofMichael Patrick Patton (1870-1943), a draper and decorator of patriotic flagdisplays, 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'sCreek 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 in1892, he is listed as a weaver. In the early part of the last century, he becameinvolved in decorating buildings and large interiors such as those atPhiladelphias Frankford Arsenal.In time, Pattons great-grandson recognized one of the trunks items as anAmerican flag, though not realizing its potential as an important piece of ourhistory. He then began in earnest to verify that it was, indeed, from the 18th-century. He first had it examined by S. Rabbit Goody, a nationally knowntextile historian. She concluded it was consistent both with 18th centurysewing practices and construction of that era. It was then examined by thethe major forensic lab McCrone Associates, Inc. whose 50 page reportstated that the materials are consistent with the late 18th century. Thepresent owner recently had it conserved and framed by a highly regardedtextile conservator.G13-14380_AmericanaTXT1-32_Layout 1 3/12/13 8:41 PM Page 51Rare thirteen star American Revolutionary FlagHoist inscribed, "natt. ames. of england, march. 26 1784", Comprised of blue wool canton with thirteen 5-pointed cotton stars in a 4-5-4 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 inkinscription on the hoist has been completed and accompanies this lot. Thered 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 18thcentury. The inscription ink was identified as thin Oriental smoke black ink ina gelatin binder, probably mixed with sea water-also appropriate for the late18th century.$175,000-$250,000This flag's unusual hand-written inscription is thought to have been made byNathaniel Ames (1761-1863), born in Killingly, Connecticut. He joined theNew London County Militia at the outbreak of the Revolutionary War and, asa 17-year-old, helped in the building of Fort Griswold in Groton, Connecticut.He later joined the Connecticut Continental Army and served underWashington at Morristown during the harsh winter of 1780. Ames went onto join the crew of a 16-gun brig and privateer, Marquise de Lafayette, andtraveled to Holland and the West Indies, returning home in mid 1783. At theend of that year, Ames signed onto another merchant ship sailing toBermudathis time under an English captain. On the voyage home, the shipwas captured and taken to Bermuda where the crew was thrown in prisonfor three months. It is during this captivity that Ames most likely signed anddated 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 Prussianblueboth in common use in England and North America by the end of the18th-century. The inscription ink was identified as thin Oriental smoke-blackink in a gelatin binder, probably mixed with sea wateralso appropriate forthe late 18th-century. An analysis of the fiber and dye content of the flagsmaterials and ink inscription on the hoist has been completed andaccompanies this lot.Nathaniel AmesAmes eventually became a farmer and Methodist minister in OneidaCounty, New York until the age of 75 when he then moved to a farm inWisconsin. This flag is accompanied by photocopies of Amess pensionrecords from the National Archives; correspondence relating to his years ofmilitary service; a number of accounts of his life, along with photographsand transcribed interviews with Ames from December 11, 1832 and June 28,1833, recounting his Revolutionary War service. Also included is aphotocopy 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 of102, making him the last serving revolutionary war soldier.From the hands of a Revolutionary War patriot and naval adventurer, to thepossession of a Delaware County weaver and draper, to its years ofimprisonment in a familys trunk, this unique emblem of the United Statesis now poised to begin a new chapter in its long and rather circuitous routethrough Freemans to a new home.G13-14380_AmericanaTXT1-32_Layout 1 3/12/13 8:19 AM Page 6G13-14380_AmericanaTXT1-32_Layout 1 3/12/13 8:19 AM Page 7The Richmond Whig of August 18,1864 reports that this handsomebattle flag was presented to theLouisiana Guard Battery on August17th, 1864, through Professor AlexDimitry by New Orleans ladies nowresiding in our city. It was carrieduntil the end of the war. This is thethird flag of the Louisiana GuardBattery; the first was retired, and thesecond, captured in the battle ofRappahannock Ford, November 7,1863.According to tradition, the nightbefore General Robert E.

Ahern of NewOrleans tore the flag from its staffand wrapped it around himselfunder his shirt. He successfully hidthe flag during the surrenderproceedings at Appomattox andduring troop transport to NewOrleans. Ahern continued to hidethe flag fearing confiscation duringthe Reconstruction years. Heeventually presented the flag to theConfederate Memorial LiterarySociety of Richmond, forerunner ofthe Museum of the Confederacy, in1916.

Wine, Objects & Tradition(2012-2013), Winterthur Museum,Wilmington, Delaware. See fig. 1.Rejected by Emperor Napoleon Iafter marrying his youngest brotherJerome in 1803, Elizabeth BetsyPatterson Bonaparte (1785-1879)returned from Europe to herhometown of Baltimore, Maryland in1805 with only her newborn son,Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte (1805-1870). Though abandoned by herhusband, Betsy refused to letAmerican society forget her Imperialalliance, emblazoning the BonaparteFamily coat-of-arms on her carriageand other items.Samuel Kirk & Son, who advertisedin New York Magazine as havingprovided the service used at thewedding of Jerome and Elizabeth,fashioned silver for Betsy bearingthe Bonaparte Crest. Such piecesinclude this wine coaster; the winecoaster at Winterthur; a tea service;and a repousse sugar dish andcovered tureen currently in thecollection of the Maryland HistoricalSociety (MdHS).Though it remains unclear as to whocommissioned this wine coaster, itbears the same coat-of-arms seenon other pieces commissioned byBetsy. Given the hallmark, it couldhave been ordered by any memberof the Bonaparte family living inBaltimore from 1868-1896, includingBetsy who, in 1834 after sojourns inEurope, returned to Baltimore andlived there until her death in 1879.Betsys tradition of heraldic displaywas adopted by her son, Jerome,who, like his mother, was reportedto ride around in a coach decoratedwith the Crest. Furthermore, Jeromeamassed quite a collection ofNapoleona, which he passed alongto his son, Charles JosephBonaparte (1851-1921).Although Charles Joseph took muchgreater pride in promoting hisAmerican, rather than European,heritage, he kept all these inheritedrelics and collectibles in hisBaltimore Home in a roomappropriately dubbed TheBonaparte Room (see fig. below).He presumably acquired additionalitems directly from Betsy (the souptureen at MdHS is listed as havingbeen made for Betsy but bears hisFigure 1: Coaster, slide, or stand with Bonaparte family arms, Samuel Kirk &Son, Baltimore, Maryland; Silver, wood, cloth, Gift of Dr. Richard C.
