Side A: 6th Regiment NC Troops Flag made by Christine Fisher #cw150 Regimental Flag of the Sixth Regiment North Carolina State Troops (1915.4.5)   This ornate two-sided flag of the Sixth Regiment North Carolina State Troops was made by Christine Fisher from her silk shawl. She presented it to the Sixth Regiment North Carolina State Troops commanded by her brother Colonel Charles Fisher who was later killed on July 21, 1861 at the Battle of First Manassas. It is documented that the flag was carried not only at Manassas but also at Gettysburg in July 1863. The flag was carried by veterans from the regiment on May 20, 1894 during the laying of the cornerstone of the Confederate Monument on the grounds of the North Carolina state capitol building. At some point the flag was returned to the Fisher family and in 1915 Colonel Fisher’s daughter, Frances Christine Fisher Tiernan presented it to the Hall of History. Tiernan had become an accomplished writer after the war using the pen name of “Christian Reid.”

Images of the flag of the Marion Light Infantry before (T) and after (B) conservation treatment. Flag: 4th Alabama Infantry (Co. G, Marion Light Infantry)  Catalogue No. 86.4007.1 (PN16344-16346) Provenance Reconstruction:  This flag was made in Marion, Alabama, and painted by Nicola Marschall. According to a letter printed in the Weekly Marion American, on July 17, 1861, this flag was sent to the Marion Light Infantry after their arrival in Virginia. The flag was donated by the ladies of Marion and taken to the company by John Conch. It was described as bearing a "beautiful device which illustrates so aptly the product of our lovely country" (apparently a reference to the cotton plant and bale of cotton painted on the obverse of the flag). In several postwar accounts it is referred to as "the cotton bale flag." The reverse of the flag is an 11 star first national Confederate flag. This flag was among the 10 company flags carried by the 4th Alabama Infantry during a dress parade at Harper's Ferry in June 1861. When the 4th Alabama was brigaded under General Bernard Bee all of the company flags with the exception of this one, were turned over to the company officials.1 The flag of the Marion Light Infantry continued in use as the regimental colors. In a letter dated July 23, 1913, William H. Fiquet, a former member of the Marion Light Infantry, noted that the regiment carried the "flag with the cotton bale on it at First Manassas." In addition, according to an account attributed to the flag bearer, he was carrying this flag at the first Battle of Manassas when he witnessed the conversation between General Bernard Bee and Captain Porter King which resulted in Thomas J. Jackson receiving the nickname "Stonewall." The flag was brought home by Captain King who returned to Marion after one year of service. He later gave the flag to his son Porter King. The flag was presented to the Alabama Department of Archives and History by Mrs. Porter King on March 15, 1904. This flag received conservation treatment and was prepared for display by Textile Preservation Associates, Inc. of Sharpsburg, Maryland, in February 2000.

Battle flag of the19th South Carolina infantry regiment . The flag is one of just six known examples of “Macon Arsenal” banners, produced in Macon, GA. The wool flag is approximately 48 inches by 52 inches. Macon Arsenal flags are distinctive because the white Cross of St. Andrew extends through the center, isolating the banner’s center star.Unlike most South Carolina regiments, the 19th South Carolina spent the majority of the war fighting in the west, and was attached to the Army of Tennessee for a good part of the conflict.  The unit saw action at the Battle of Atlanta, Franklin and in the Carolinas Campaign near the war’s end. It surrendered near High Point, N.C., on April 26, 1865, with the Army of Tennessee.
