Thu flag of the Confederacy, orrdthm |
thetln; ��� of the Confederacy,'had some ou- i
rious bits of history attached to theiroxist-
���nes.    On March S, 18(11, the provisional
Or.nfederate congress recommendjd that I
"tho iflag  of   tho Confederate States of
America shall consist of a red field, with
a    v hlto   space   extending  -horizontally I
Uirough the eeilter and equal in width to i
���ne-third  theiwidth of the flag, the red I
���paces ii ' .i,s-o and ibelow'to bo of the same
'Width as  the white, tho  union, lulie.ei-
teuding down 'through the white -space*
nnd stopping  at  thu 'lower red space, is
tho center (if tho union a circle of white
stars corresponding in   number-wthithe
states of  iho <3onfedemoy."    It was lirst
displayed in public March 4, l_(i-l, tho day
of tho Inauguration of   Lincoln, nnd WM i
unfurled ovor tho statchounoat Montgomery, Ala.
On tho hattloCeld the Bag bom such a
similarity to thc Union flag that in !.ep-
teinlx.T, 18(il,ifor the Army of the IVitomuu,
Generals Beauregard and Johnston created
what afterward became known as tho bat-
Slosflug���arcd ground with a blue diagonal
cross emblazoned with whito stars, ono for
eacli statu This furm was adopted by all
of Ihe troops OUSt'Of it be Mississippi river. |
Theiflrst design, ���bearing tho objection df |
reseinbliinooto the stars and stripes, nnd j
thu battloQag having no rovorso, tho Confederate senate ln April, lSiiTJ, adopted a '
white Hag,-with a broad .bluo'tour In its
center, wliich was nuionded h. inserting
the battlollng design us the union, with a
plain .whito grouml foritho,field. This arrangement afterword provodfaulty, as at
a distance tho large white field resembled
a Hag uf truce, and also, as combined with
tbe union, wus similar to tho __ng!t_h
whito ensign.
On Bob. 4, J8B5, the Confederate senate
adoptedt-thlrd'Changoi "The width, two- !
thirds of its length, with the union, now ,
