The original, hand-stitched silk flag with gold-painted stars was designed for the Confederate Army of the Potomac after the first battle of Manassas. It was created as a military necessity, without the authority or knowledge of the Confederate government—however, it filled a dire need. Gens. P. G. T. Beauregard and Joseph E. Johnston recognized that Confederate units needed to have an identifiable banner to unite them on the battlefield. A sketch of this flag design was provided to Mary Lyon Jones of Richmond, Virginia, who stitched the first Confederate battle flag.
Detailing the everyday experience of Confederate soldiers as they marched through the mud toward their opponents from the North, Alan H.

As exhausted soldiers stumble into camp, they erect their tents, unroll their blankets, and swallow a shot of smuggled whiskey to take the edge off the cold in this enticing book that uniquely summarizes American military history of the nineteenth century.
