From the Collections
The Banner of the Calais Frontier Guard is one of seventeen banners in the collection of the Maine Historical Society. Ranging from an 1805 Stroudwater militia standard to a 1960s Black Power banner, each is a graphic statement about time, place, and values. The Calais militia banner, dating from Maine’s Northeast Boundary dispute era (1839-1842), provides an excellent example of how such an object can be used to document various themes in state and national history.
