The Confederate Flag:
R. T. Beauregard. of New OrUenii,
Civet the following account of the de
sign of the confederate Hag:
"During the battle of Miniiui
General Beauregard had obseryed Uie
difficulty of distinguishing our (Mm
from the enemy'* colore and in order to
prevent all errors in the future had
determined to adopt in his army a bat
tle flat distinct in color and deeign.
He at drat sought to procure a change
in the confederate flag itself, and Col
onel W. P. Miles, then chairman of the
house military committee, had caused,
at his request, a report to be presented
to that effect, but with no result. In
a conference between the then three
senior officers at Fairfax courthouse in
September out of four designs for a
battleflag one presented by General
Beaugard was adopted. It was a red
Jield with a diagonal blue cross, the
latter edged with white and bearing
white star*. To render it moie porta
ble it was made square instead of ob
long by order of General Johnson.
"This beautiful design, by a atrange
coincidence, had been previously de
vised by Colonel Miles and recom
mended for the confederate flag to con
gress, then in session at Montgomery
in March, 1S61. It had also been pro
posed by Mr. Edward C. Hancock, at
the request of Colonel James B. Wal
ton, at New Orleans in the month of
April. ' It had been offered by Colonel
Miles to General Beauregard in substi
tution for one nearly similar in emblem
and pattern, tut different in the distri
bution of colors, suggested to him by
Gsneral Beauregard when the latter was
seeking to procure a change in the con
federate flag. And it was now pro
posed anew to the general by Colonel
Walton, who had Mr. Hancock's de
'"Thus it will be seen that the design
1 of the Confederate battleflag was con
ceived and drawn long before a union
soldier had tried his skill in water
'colors On an original which was not
and could never have reached the
hands of the general's lamented daugh
ter. She was a little girl who was in
Louisiana during the whole of our un
fortunate war and was seen by her fa
ther only at its c!ose." ? Lexington
The above in regard to the Confeder
ate flag, so we learn, is in a measure
true, but the real Confederate flag, the
one first adopted and now recognized
the true flag was not originated by a
Yankee, but by a North Carolinian, a
native of F.ranklin connty, arid is now
liying and receiving the honors being
bestowed upon him by many who
know him. He is none the'less than
our highly esteemed Confederate gen
tleman, Mr. Grr'en R. Smith", of Hen
derson. The Dispatch as well as oth
ers discussing this subject should bet
i ter inform themselyes about the his
i tory of this flag. We can and will
gladly furnish you suificient p/oof when 1
necessary. ? |
