Summary

Cover illustration for a patriotic song composed by George F. Cole, copyrighted in 1836. A young American seaman, holding an American flag with his right hand and raising his hat aloft with his left, stands on a shore with a harbor and fort (possibly Baltimore's Fort McHenry) behind him. The illustration is probably by John Penniman, son of John Ritto Penniman, who was apprenticed to Baltimore lithographer Moses Swett as early as 1830.
