Catalogue Note: The 1840's and 1850's were a turbulent period during America's political evolution. Amidst the outgrowth of new parties, and the transformation of older ones, a nascent political party known as the "American" party, or the "Native American" party, later referred to as "Know Nothings" by the opposition, emerged. The Native American party, overtly xenophobic in its approach, supported a staunchly anti-immigration platform, even proposing that immigrants coming to the United States who did qualify for admittance must wait 21 years before receiving citizenship - thus, the slogan on the present flag banner.
