The USS Louisanna was one of the battleships that sailed on the Great White Fleet sent by Theodore Roosevelt around the world to do a little saber rattling. Congress refused to pay for the journey, Roosevelt sent them anyway, forcing Congress to pay for their return. This novety card has within it a little flag that is enclosed inside the post card. By pushing a little tab on the back the US flag comes out the top of the card. It is a cute item from a more innocent age.
