"The book is profusely illustrated in color, which is a treat." --Blue & Gray Magazine "Outstanding in both presentation and full color photographs" --The Skirmish Line "A meticulously detailed resource offering very specific information for history and Civil War buffs, The Flags of Civil War North Carolina is a welcome contribution to the growing library of Civil War studies and could very well serve as a template for similar volumes." --The Midwest Book Review "A treasure trove of information" --American Press "This is a book every Civil War collector must have . . . It has something for everyone." --The Lebanon (MO) Daily Record Flags stir powerful emotions, and few objects evoke such a sense of duty and love of one's homeland. In April 1861, the first flag of a new republic flew over North Carolina. The state had just seceded from the Union, and its citizens would soon have to fight for their homes, their families, and their way of life. The Flags of Civil War North Carolina is the history of this short-lived republic (which later joined the Confederacy), told through the banners that flew over its government, cavalry, and navy. From the hand-painted flag of the Guilford Greys to the flag of the Buncombe Riflemen--made from the dresses of the ladies of Asheville--this collection is an exceptional tribute to the valiant men who bore these banners and to their ill-fated crusade for independence.
