RARE COLORED CIVIL WAR SOLDIER IN UNIFORM PUBLISHED IN MILITARY IMAGES MAGAZINE (TRADED)
Confederate Burger Brothers Richmond Lance Guidon Flag. This Burger Brothers Richmond Lance Guidon is the RARE Painted Stars Pattern. The Flag is museum quality framed with full conservation report and authenticity from Josh Phillips. This Confederate Guidon has been professionally conserved by Heritage Conservation.
This Burger Brothers Richmond Lance Guidon will Rebel Yell in any Civil War Relics Collection. This is one of the Burger & Brothers Flags that we now have proof that either the Cary Sisters or Laura Lacy hand made for Burger Brothers. The Cary sisters are credited with making the very 1st 3 battleflags. The size of this Confederate Flag is awesome. Many Confederate Flags are way to big to frame for display. This Burger & Bros. Guidon is the perfect size for display in the home or office. The frame and all is around 21 1/2″ X 16 1/2″ inches. This Confederate Flag would look outstanding in any War Room.
Hetty Carr Cary (May 15, 1836 – September 27, 1892) was the wife of CSA General John Pegram and, later, of pioneer physiologist H. Newell Martin. She is best remembered for making the first three battle flags of the Confederacy (along with her sister and cousin). Hetty was related to two of Virginia's most influential families, the Jeffersons (Thomas Jefferson) (through her mother's family) and the Randolphs (through her paternal grandmother, Virginia Randolph Cary). She was also a lineal descendant of Pocahontas.
Henry Kyd Douglas, in I Rode With Stonewall, described Hetty as "the most beautiful woman of her day and generation" and "the handsomest woman in the Southland -- with her classic face, her pure complexion, her auburn hair. her perfect figure and her carriage, altogether the most beautiful woman I ever saw in any land."
Hetty was wholeheartedly a supporter of the South, even when in the North and among Union soldiers. On one occasion, she waved a smuggled Confederate flag from a second-story window as Federal troops marched through Baltimore. An officer of the passing regiment allegedly pointed Hetty out to his colonel, asking, "Shall I have her arrested?" The colonel looked at her and replied: "No, she is beautiful enough to do as she pleases."
Hetty and her sister Jennie smuggled drugs and clothing across the Potomac through the Union blockade for Confederate troops. They were forced to leave Baltimore after federal authorities discovered her Southern sympathies. They escaped to Richmond, where they then lived with their cousin Constance Cary and her mother, who served as the girls' chaperone. The three young ladies became known as the Cary Invincibles.
Due to confusion among the troops during the First Battle of Bull Run due to the similar design and color of the Confederate flag, the Stars and Bars, and the Union flag, the Stars and Stripes, Confederate General P. G. T. Beauregard recommended that the Confederate flag be changed.
Constance Cary wrote:
During the autumn of '61, to my cousins, Hetty and Jennie, and to me was entrusted the making of the first three battle flags of the Confederacy. They were jaunty squares of scarlet crossed with dark blue edged in white, the cross bearing stars to indicate the number of the seceded states. We set our best stitches upon them, edged with gold fringed, and, when they were finished, dispatched one to General Joseph Johnston, another to General Pierre Beauregard, and the last to General Earl Van Dorn. The banners were made from red silk for the fields and blue silk for the crosses.
The resulting flag, commonly called the Southern Cross, served as the principal battle flag of the cavalry, infantry, and artillery units in the Army of Northern Virginia from November 1861 until the surrender at Appomattox Court House in April 1865.
