Funeral of Miss Anne Stamp

Dear Colleagues,

Yesterday in class I showed the British political cartoon, "The repeal, or funeral of Miss Anne Stamp." A student asked what the flags were that the two men at the front of the funeral procession are carrying. I could not easily find a definitive answer so am turning to you. This version of the image at this url http://www.loc.gov/pictures/resource/ppmsca.15709/  suggests that they are images of stamps. Does anyone know whether that is correct?

Thank you!

Asafo Flags of Ghana - Lecture at the Royal Ontario Museum

September 20, 7PM

Expressive Cultures in the Idiom of Hybridity

Since their origins as the flags and ensigns of militia groups on the Gold Coast in the 18th century, asafo flags have now become sought after cultural objects. In this  richly illustrated talk, the University of Toronto's Ato Quayson will trace the  history of asafo groups and their flags, from their earliest beginnings nearly three hundred years ago to their significance today in Ghanaian and wider African cultures.

ASL Interpretation will be provided.

H-AMSTDY Wayback: The Confederate Flag

I have to admit it: I sometimes think historicizing has become a little overrated. At the same time, though, we all have access to over 20 years of academic discussion in H-AMSTDY’s Discussion Logs (and all the other H-Net logs, too) so we may as well use it to see if we can glean any perspective on today’s issues.
