This Civil War Broadside of Camp Lacey, Doylestown (PA), depicts the drilling of the Pennsylvania 104th Volunteers. Various encampments are alpha-keyed with a printed legend identifying the named company Captains. Also illustrated are vignettes of five local businesses which surround the military illustration. Most important however is the center top illustration, a dedication to the Ringgold Artillery. On October 21st, 1861, the Ringgold Flag was presented to the 104th Pennsylvania Volunteers (104th PV) by the Rev. Jacob Belville of Hartsville on behalf of the women of Bucks County who raised the money for the flag, bought it from Horstmann Brothers of Philadelphia and embroidered the name of the regiment on the middle, red stripe. That name, “Ringgold Regiment, P.V.” was joined by the Regiment’s number which was embroidered later, but before the 104th PV left for Washington D.C. on November 6. This broadside was certainly produced for that ceremonial presentation. 28-1/2,” x 22-1/2,” minor stains in margins not affecting the fine printed area. One of the first heroes of the Mexican War, Maj. Samuel Ringgold. Zachary Taylor's innovative gunnery commander was fatally wounded in May 1846 during the battle of Palo Alto. Ringgold's superbly drilled artillery was credited by Taylor with the victory at Palo Alto.
