ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a Texas-type flag of an unidentified unit. It is possible that the Thirteenth Texas Cavalry carried a flag of this type, possibly late into the war at Mansfield, Texas. The purported flag of the Thirteenth had a designation or slogan on the white bar. This flag was expensive, as it is made of silk and features stiff metallic wire fringe. The fringe may have been gold-colored or gilt. The flag, which measures 4 ½ by 6 ½ feet, lies unrestored at the Texas State Archives.
