regimniiiit had its flag. There was all
sorts of embiclms and designs. At the
First Mannassas, some of our flags
bore such reseibliaice to those of the
ftleral army that iII tlie simioke aid
tum1iult of battle, it cauised confusion,
which lead to the adoption of a uil
form stailnard for all commands. The
starry cross, the battle flag of the Con
federacy for which Uen. Beauregard
drew the design, from this time nwas
carried by every organization. The
new ldhailir was preseited to all comn

our Former captain, It. P. Todd, as

To prevellt the tirning over of ou11r flag
