Fate of the Rebel Flag

This patriotic print by William Bauly was issued by New York art publisher William Schaus in September 1861. 'Fate of the Rebel Flag' has a militantly Unionist theme. In a spectacular nocturnal scene, a large warship sinks and burns on a calm sea littered with debris. The flames take on the configuration of the red, white, and blue flag of the Confederacy, the blue field with seven stars being formed by the night sky showing through the flames. Lightning strikes the flag from the upper left.
