First National Confederate flag

11 double appliquéd wool-silk blend stars hand-sewn onto wool-silk blend canton with machine sewn wool-silk blend stripes. Across the front of the white stripe is embroidered To Freedom`s battle on, we send them and God of Battle thy help lend them. Across the reverse of this stripe is embroidered Our cause is just, our duty we know, and In God we trust, to battle we go. The entire flag is edged in a deeper blue color silk ribbon. There remains 1 red silk tie and the remnants of 2 others. Approx. 34.5″ x 81.5″. We believe this to be a UCV period color. Complete with a gilt bronze painted torpedo-shaped cotton bag that has remnant of a pull-string closure (some paint loss throughout).
