History of the 34-star flag
A 34th star was added to the American flag to recognize Kansas as the 34th state, as it was admitted to the Union on January 29th, 1861. The American flag would continue to bear 34 stars until West Virginia became the 35th state on June 20th, 1863. Prior to June 14th, 1923, when the US Flag Code was constructed, there were no official guidelines on displaying the American flag or any official specifications on the proportions of the length and width or the pattern in which the stars were to be arranged. As a result, American flags made prior to this could have been made in a number of different sizes shapes, and star pattern arrangements. The American flag with the linear pattern as seen on this particular design as well as circular patterned flags was carried into battle by Union troops during the American civil war.
