Robert E. Lee Headquarters Flag


Robert E. Lee Headquarters Flag

Made for General Robert E. Lee by his wife and daughters, this unique banner became the symbol of his headquarters throughout the Civil War.  It is a variation of the Stars and Bars, with a different star pattern.  It is said that the pattern was a tribute to the Ark of the Covenant.  It was used by Confederates to track Lee’s position on the field, which was often closer to the front lines then many of them were comfortable with.
