Can anyone tell me who can identify a Civil War flag that has been handed down to me from my Great-Great-Grandfather. I'm not sure of the state that my ancestor lived in when he entered the Civil War. He was born in PA, moved to Zanesville, Ohio, then Indiana, and finally to Illinois, but I think after the war.
I took a picture of the flag, which I will be happy to send you, if I had an email address to attach it to. I don't understand how to do the "Optional Image URL" below. Sounds like I need to create a Web site?
The flag is 109 (9' 1") inches by 58 (4' 10") inches. It is a medium beige background with a royal blue silhouette of a soldier holding a rifle in the center, about 48" tall, with about a 6" blue star in each corner of the flag. Aligned on the right side of the soldier is a round shield, with a lighter beige background, and a red spread eagle holding something in its feet.
The flag is is great shape. I don't know if it's a real Civil War flag or a reunion flag. Can someone point me in the right direction for identifying this flag? I would really appreciate it.
