    Default Today I learned what the Confederate flag looked like.

    It looked like this, and was commonly called, “The Stars And Bars”. The flag we usually call the Confederate flag was actually the military flag indicating the Army of Northern Virginia (a square flag) or the Army of Tennessee (a rectangular version).

    This was the first one (unofficial) early in 1861. The "Bonnie Blue Flag."

    It's the last Confederate flag that counts the most; a white bedsheet.

    Anthony, do you mean worn over the face with pointy hat underneath, or on a pole to surrender?
