Flag Historical Reference

36 star usa flag

36 Star Flag
When the Civil War began a suggestion was made to President Lincoln to divide the existing American flag diagonally in half. The idea is that the North would leave the lower portion white and the South would leave the upper portion white. Neither side liked the idea very much. The flag retained the full number of stars and actually added 2 stars in 1861. The flag shown here is the 36 star flag and was used during the last year of the Civil War. (*)

first confederate flag

Stars and Bars Confederate flag (first)
While the Union continued to use the previous American flag without any changes, the Confederacy decided to adopt new banners. This is the first of these banners. It was adopted in march 1861 and continued to be used until may 1863. This flag was found to be too close to the Union's flag when flying on the battle field and caused some confusion. It was decided that they needed a new design.(*)
