I recently purchased this flag at an estate sale and i was hoping you could help me determine its value. The flag is from the 1865 era, it is said to be an original.
The flag has seven stars, red and white stripe. On the white strip it says "23rd Virginia" and the red stripe there are several names, "kanaw_" "sulphur springs" "droop mountain", "new market", "north anna".
On the bottom red stripe it says: Presented to the cold harbor brave men of co(hole)b Lynchburg 23rd virginia infan. monocacay by ladies aux.1865 Winchester christianburg cedar creek.
This flag was blue light tested.
Looking to sell. Let m eknow if you would like me to email you a picture.
