The Civil War Flags Message Board

MOC "Colours of the Gray" flags captured.

"Colours Of The Gray" from the Museum of the Confederacy's catalog. I went through and put together all the flags captured. There were many more "unidentified" flags and I can list those for anyone that is curious. I typed this up with a very brief who took who's flag and where. I can give more detail on the flags IE: Type, Stars, Size etc. Just respond back and let me know what particular regiments you want to know more details on. I read that they don't sell this catalog anymore. I picked this up years and years ago. I still have the price sticker on the back "$17.95", worth every singe penny.
