Menu for Al Fresco Luncheon to President William H. Taft

Menu for Al Fresco Luncheon to President William H. Taft | Print | Wisconsin Historical Society
Front cover and menu listing for a luncheon for President William Taft, with a wreath superimposed over two crossed flags: a 24-star Union flag and a Confederate flag. The two pages of the menu are tied together with a blue and grey cord, and include these quotations: "A bullet from the battlefields at Petersburg," "The scars left on our city by the siege are to-day hidden by the royal colors with which we welcome OUR PRESIDENT," and "'Each single wreck in the warpath of might, has become now a rock in the temple of right.'" The menu page includes an image of two candelabras and perhaps a clove-studded Smithfield ham?
