ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the battle flag carried by the First Texas Infantry Regiment when it fought against Union regiments. First Texas probably carried a Third Bunting Issue flag as its official regimental flag, however, there is also evidence that First Texas unofficially retained a silk Lone Star Flag. The battle flag was edged in black crepe as a memorial to the many dead of the regiment. The black and white photo of the flag in the Texas State Archives does not differentiate between supportive backing and the actual remaining white and red bars.
