PRESS RELEASE – “Rare War of 1812 Battle Flag is Conserved”

Just completed, a rare historic battle flag of the Tennessee Volunteers under the command of John Williams.  The flag has been owned by the Williams family since it was made by Polly Williams.  The flag was carried into battle by Sam Houston (first Governor of Texas) and was carried at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend, Alabama, where Colonel Williams troops fought with Andrew Jackson.  The flag is a significant piece of American history.

The flag was conserved and framed using a pressure mount at Spicer Art Conservation, where Gwen Spicer is an expert in the conservation of Historic Battle flags and banners.
