• Rare 1912 Theodore Roosevelt Progressive Battle Flag

    Roosevelt, Theodore.

    Progressive Era Battle Flag: Theodore Roosevelt.

    1912.

    Progressive era “Battle Flag” from 1912 with a printed portrait of Theodore Roosevelt at the center surrounded by the text “Progressive/Roosevelt 1912 Battle Flag”, with the initials “D & C” at the lower left. The flag measures 21 inches by 24 inches. Frustrated that he did not win the Republican nomination for the Presidency in 1912, Roosevelt founded the Progressive or the “Bull Moose” party in order to challenge the Republican incumbent William Howard Taft. Both would ultimately lose to Democrat Woodrow Wilson. Framed. An exceptional example.
