The presentation of the first battleflags to the Confederate Army at Centerville, November 28th 1861. Theses flags were mostly pink and rose silk (red silk being hard to come by at the time). General Beauregard and Johnston were present along with other generals and dignitaries. Later on the flags started to be made from red wool. By Don Troiani.
