Lithograph of an original newspaper manuscript first published by Captain William H. May and Union soldiers while imprisoned at Camp Ford, Tyler, Smith County, Texas. The paper was published for the purpose of "enlivening the monotonous, at times almost unbearably eventless life of Camp Ford" (J. P. Robbins, Preface to The Old Flag). Included are humorous articles, jokes, poems, and advertisements, along with a list of prisoners. The manuscript was originally hand lettered and illustrated on unruled letter paper.
