This fantastic book features flags of the Southern nation between 1861 and 1865 and the history of national, state, and military flags. It offers a comprehensive discussion on the banners, as well as a colored section in the center of book showcasing all the flags.
This is a valuable book to have in your Southern collection–we highly recommend it! ~ Matt
About the author:
Devereaux D. Cannon, Jr. is a seventh generation Tennessean. His ancestor, Devereaux Gilliam, settled in the Tennessee country in 1785. It comes as no surprise, then, that he has had an avid interest in history since his early childhood. As a child, his interest led him to be an active member of Children of the American Revolution and Children of the Confederacy. As an adult, his fascination with history has led to an interest in politics as well. Cannon, a lawyer, has been an alternate delegate to a Republican National Convention, a candidate for the Tennessee General Assembly, and a member of the Planning Committee for Nashville Jefferson Meeting on the Constitution. His interest has also manifested itself in his books. His books, in turn, have earned this avid flag collector much respect as a historian and vexillologist.
