Flags of the American Civil War 1: Confederate/Philip Katcher, Jeffrey Burn. Osprey Men at Arms Series 252. Softcover. New edition 1995. Out of print. Condition: Very good. ISBN 1855322706
In this first of three books focusing on flags of the Civil War, the detailed text, full colour illustrations and rare photographs examine and portray the myriad variations of those used to represent the seceding southern states. Its flag lay at the very heart of the Confederate fighting unit, marking both the rallying point on the field of battle and the unit headquarters in camp, and at the war’s conclusion it was the furling of the defeated Confederate banners that signalled the end of this dreadful period in American history.
