Description and presentation of the 35th Georgia Infantry flag.
SOUTHERN CONFEDERACY [ATLANTA, GA], October 31, 1861, p. 3, c. 3
Yesterday we were shown, by the artist, a most beautiful Confederate Flag which was prepared for the Stephens Regiment--Col. E. L. Thomas--now at Walton's Spring, near this city. It is of the finest silk, and ornamented. On one side of the blue field is the coat of arms and motto of the State of Georgia, and the words "35th Georgia," upon the arch.
On the other side is a fine painted likeness of Hon. A. H. Stephens, and under the words "Stephens Rifles." It is by far the handsomest flag we have seen since this revolution commenced.
