U.S. 31 Stars Flag, Storm Flag, 1851 - 1858.

Sub-collection: Howard M. Madaus - Civil War & 19th Century Military Collection

An unusual 31-star U.S. Storm Flag, diagonal rows of stars.
This flag has an unusual star pattern, somewhat similar to the truncated diamond employed on U.S. military garrison flags of the same period. California became the 31st state in 1850, with its star being added to the U.S. flag officially in 1851.
