Click on an image to enlarge

This is a wonderful Confederate 1st National flag with a historic background. The flag is handmade and measures 38 inches by 18 inches in overall size. The double-sided flag is made of wool and it has the 13 applied white silk 2 inch stars, one for each state of the Confederacy. It was made by Miss Letitia Austin for her fiancé, Captain Charles Frazer. When Frazer was captured in the battle of Cumberland Gap in 1863, Letitia was inside the Confederate Garrison. She was allowed by the Union soldiers to leave with the civilians. She had hidden this flag so it wouldn’t be captured with the fall of the Confederate garrison. This flag was purchased from the family in 1988 by John Sexton and he wrote out for me what he remembers from his notes about the flag and the collection. He states that the flag and the uniform of C.W. Frazer with "Southern Confederacy" buttons adorning the front. The flag was sold by him to Steve Mullinax, author of the book on Confederate Belt Buckles. Steve sold the flag to Mike Miner of Sevierville, Tennessee. It has spent the last several years in the collection of my friend and country music legend Hank Williams, Jr. The flag has been featured in the new book by the Tennessee State Museum about Confederate Flags of Tennessee as well as several other books on Southern flags. It has been professionally conserved and frame by Jessica Hack of Louisiana. This flag is a gorgeous piece of history that is ready to hang on your wall.
