“The last word on the flags of the lost cause.”
—The Wall Street Journal
In the decades which have followed the fall of the Confederate States of America, much information on the flags of the member states has been lost, and much of what has been retained about the flags of the Confederacy has been confused or misunderstood.
A comprehensive discussion of the flags that represented the southern nation between 1861 and 1865, The Flags of the Confederacy offers a detailed and well-researched look at the history of the national, state, and military flags that were developed during the period in which the new Southern nation existed. This volume is a thorough examination of these flags and the stories that went along with them, and providing a useful, organized, and interesting view for all Civil War students and history enthusiasts.
