Title:  

First Florida Cavalry & 4th Florida Infantry Confederate Battle Flag
Date:
1863-1864

Content Description: 

Flag, Confederate. Battle Flag of the 1st Florida Cavalry (dismounted) and the 4th Florida Infantry Regiment (consolidated). Confederate second national pattern flag, having originally a white field, a dark red canton with a dark blue St. Andrew's Cross. Traces of thirteen five-pointed, gold-painted stars remain, evenly spaced on the blue cross. This flag was constructed without white edging (fimbriation) on the blue cross. Canton size is relatively small, less than one half the length of the height of the flag. Inscribed 1st & 4th FLA. VOLS. Also inscribed with battle honor: "Murfeesboro" and the first several letters of "Jackson." Flag was originally somewhat longer, but it was shortened, likely due to souveniring by capturing soldiers. This also explains the missing square area along the bottom edge.
