ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a company banner of the Tenth Texas Cavalry Regiment. Unlike the First National Flag of this regiment, this banner, which measures 3 x 6 1/2-foot, more closely follows the standard Stars and Bars specification in that it has a square canton. Like the majority of the First National Flag types in Texas, it features a large, central star. The sight of this regiment on parade must have been colorful indeed. This flag is displayed at the Texas National Guard Museum of Camp Mabry in Austin, Texas.
