ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the flag that was identical to the Third Bunting Issue and used prior to the summer battles in Texas in 1862. This type of flag is made of wool bunting and varied in size for infantry, artillery, and cavalry. Infantry flags normally measured approximately 4x4 feet. Richmond Clothing Depot began issuing variations of this type in June 1864, for the most part being increased in size, spacing of the stars, and some differences in the width of the blue Saint Andrew's Cross.
