***See our Patriotic Imprints section to read more information about this item.

Colonel Elmer E. Ellsworth: (1837-1861) He was famous before the Civil War for organizing the Chicago Zouaves and staging spectacular drill exhibitions throughout the country. In August 1860, he performed on the lawn of the White House. He later accompanied President elect Abraham Lincoln to Washington for the inauguration, having become very close to the Lincoln family. He raised the Fire Zouaves, the 11th New York Vols., and led them into Washington in May 1861. He was shot down and killed by James T. Jackson, the proprietor of the Marshall House Hotel in Alexandria, Va., on May 24, 1861, after having removed a Confederate flag from the roof of that building. It was claimed to have been seen from the White House and Ellsworth found it to be an insult to President Lincoln. Jackson was immediately killed by Private Francis E. Brownell. A correspondent of the New York Tribune was on the scene, and the episode caused an immediate sensation which contributed greatly to the war sentiment in the North.
