Rare Original Copy of Booklet Showing Returned Confederate Battle Flags

SOLD

Rare Original Copy of Booklet Showing Returned Confederate Battle Flags – In honor of their 40th annual reunion at Louisville, Kentucky, in 1905, the United Confederate Veterans were presented with their old Battle Flags, which had been captured by Federal forces and held since the War. The Cotton Belt Railroad, which probably provided excursion trains to the convention, presented each veteran with a souvenir booklet listing and illustrating a number of these tattered banners, many mere bullet-torn fragments. The original booklets have become quite rare and almost impossible to find; reprints are available, but this is an original copy, in overall good condition.
