(House Bill No. 18. APPRoved JUNE 28, 1915.)

AN ACT regarding the return by the State of Illinois of a silk banner presented to General Andrew Jackson by the ladies of New Orleans, on December 30, 1814. WHEREAs, during the war of 1812, the ladies of New Orleans made an elaborately embroidered silk banner which they presented to General Andrew Jackson on December 30, 1814, he being at that time in the city of New Orleans defending the city against the British invasion, which said banner was carried victoriously through the battle of New Orleans, December [January] 8, 1815; and WHEREAs, the said banner was secured by a detachment of Illinois cavalry under General Osterhaus at Black River Bridge in 1863 and brought with other trophies of the Civil War to Illinois and is now in Memorial Hall at Springfield, Illinois; and WHEREAs, it is desired by many patriotic bodies and persons that this banner be returned to New Orleans that it may be viewed and enjoyed by such of the ladies as survive who gave it and by their descendants and by all the people of the patriotic city of New Orleans and state of Louisiana; and

WHEREAs, it has become customary to return flags and trophies of war to their original donors or owners; and

WHEREAs, the present year, 1915, is the one hundredth anniversary of the battle of New Orleans in which the said banner was carried and therefore a fitting time for the presentation of the same to the city of New Orleans; and

WHEREAs, also, the association of “The United States Daughters of 1812” is a patriotic society of ladies whose near relatives were in the war of 1812 and is therefore a suitable instrumentality for the return of the Andrew Jackson banner; therefore

SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, represented in the General Assembly: That the custodian of Memorial Hall at Springfield, Illinois, is hereby directed to return to the city of New Orleans, and state of Louisiana, “the silk banner presented to General Andrew Jackson by the ladies of New Orleans, December 30, 1814,” now being kept in Memorial Hall, Springfield, Illinois.

§ 2. The Adjutant General is hereby authorized and directed to deliver the said flag for transmission to the city of New Orleans, in the state of Louisiana, to the president of the committee, consisting of one or more members appointed or to be appointed by the “United States Daughters of 1812,” and it shall be the duty of said committee to transmit said banner to the mayor of the city of New Orleans, to be disposed of as shall be determined by the proper authorities of the city of New Orleans.
