When I first contacted the owner, he was very reluctant on telling me about the flag, and in fact stated that while his father had at one time owned it, he didn't and never had. I had many phone conversations with him over a period of time, and realised he was a very private person. I also think he must have been approached by someone asking for the flag, and therefore was very suspectfull of persons asking about it. I had told him that I learned about him from a museum curator, and that didn't set very well with him. After a period of time he admitted to having the flag. He gave me the size, and when I asked if it was a reverse pattern he stated it was, which I thought by looking at the photos.
I am going to get into my files and find his name and number again, and see if it may be possible to get a current photo once again. He told me that he wasn't that interested in the civil war, but was very interested in his family history. He also stated he had it incased in glass with the proper method of preservation.
I have made a reproduction of it from his discription, if I recall it was made of cotton bunting, at least that is what mine is made of. I should also state that I had never attempted to sow anything before, but with my mothers great help was able to put it together.
I will post any information I get.
Flag size was bigger than a military artillery flag, measureing 44 inches square, a referse pattern without white seperating the cross and field. I have to admit that I either didn't ask or forgot what the cross measured across. So I hope to get all that once again from him, if I can still access him.
