This campaign flag uses 31 stars to advertise the names Lincoln and Hamlin for the 1860 election (although there were 33 states in the Union then). Just like today, patriotic imagery was often employed in campaign memorabilia, and similar material would be created four years later for Lincoln's second campaign in 1864.
