Exceptional flag and one of only FOUR of the pattern known to have survived.  This example has documentation relating to its capture at Vicksburg by an Illinois soldier–much more information will be provided to the new owner.  This is the exact same flag pictured in the reference book noted in the images.

One identical example is in the Missouri State Museum identified as the battleflag of the 9th Missouri Sharpshooter Battalion. The flag is documented as one of a small number secretly made by local rebellious ladies in the Federal occupied New Orleans district that were smuggled through the lines and presented to Mosby M. Parsons’ Missouri Brigade at Little Rock, Arkansas in Spring of 1863.

This pattern is known as the “Missouri Battle Flag,” “Sterling Price Battle Flag,” or “Belle Edmondson’s Latin Cross,” as the pattern was originally designed by Miss Belle Edmondson of Memphis, Tennessee for Sterling Prices’ Missouri Confederate Troops.
