Whose Flag?

Recommended Posts

Although not present at Battle of Shiloh, thousands of Federal soldiers encamped at Pittsburg Landing prior to 6 April 1862 fought men loyal to this flag.

Happy hunting...

It is the Missouri State Flag--- Flags like this carried by members of the Missouri State Guard-- pro-slave, pro-secession, and pro-Missouri. Tom

Well Done, Tom !

The above banner is indeed that used by Rebels of Missouri State Guard. And their opponents in Missouri used the one, below:
