1779-1780 Poor's Brigade Flag

ZIP File

Fight in General Poor's New Hampshire Brigade!  This particular flag is taken from a tiny detail on a map of Sullivan's campaign against the Iroquois Confederacy in 1779.  It is unclear whether one or all of the regiments in Maxwell's Brigade (1st NH, 2nd NH, 3rd NH, and 6th Massachusetts) carried this flag, or whether it was a brigade-level flag.  George Washington does mention a brigade flag and division flag in his general orders in 1780.

The original illustration is very small, thus some details are (currently) speculative.  The stars are illustrated by dots, so this artist chose an eight-pointed star.  The field upon which the stars are scattered has been illustrated as white and light blue to give you the choice of which one (or both!) your troops would like to field.

Flag comes as six high-quality PNG images: obverse, reverse, and complete flag, contained in a zip folder.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
