The Five Flags Hoisted at 83 20 26 N. on May 12th. 1876. Nares Expedition.
Rare lithograph commemorating the farthest north record set by Commander Markham on May 12th. 1876, showing the five flags of the expedition. The British Arctic Expedition of 1875-1876, led by Sir George Nares, was another attempt by the Admiralty to reach the North Pole. Although the expedition failed in its goal to reach the Pole a sledging party under Commander Markham did in fact set the new record commemorated by this broadside.
