The Flags Of Civil War North Carolina is a very straightforward reference presenting photographs,
color illustrations, descriptions and history of the titular flags that flew over North Carolina

for the other Confederate as well as Union states. Great photos and illustrations! Continued below...
Flags stir powerful emotions,
and few objects evoke such a sense of duty and love for the homeland. In April 1861, the first flag of a new republic flew
Carolina. The state had just seceded from the union, and its citizens would soon have to fight for
their homes, their families, and their way of life. Each flag is meticulously detailed and scaled to perfection. The Flags of Civil
War North Carolina is the history of this short-lived republic
(which later joined the Confederacy), told through the banners that flew over its government, cavalry, and navy. From the
hand-painted flag of the Guilford Greys to the flag of the Buncombe Riflemen--made from the dresses of the
ladies of Asheville--this collection is an exceptional tribute
to the valiant men who bore these banners and to their ill-fated crusade for independence. About the Author:
Glenn Dedmondt, a lifelong resident of the Carolinas and member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, shares his passion for
the past as a teacher of South Carolina history. Dedmondt
has also been published in Confederate Veteran magazine.

on vexillology (the study of flags). This book offers a history, profiles, design specifications and an overview of the various
flags (national flags, battle flags and naval ensigns) that were utilized by the Confederacy. The book features several pages

flag makers to revive the old flags in addition to the 3 national flags, the battle flag and the naval ensign. This book is
must have for flag gurus, Civil War buffs and southern partisans.
Recommended Reading: "Why I Wave the Confederate Flag, Written by a Black Man". Description: Congress shall make no law respecting and establishment of religion,
or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people
peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. "This book is about truth and passion."
What makes this book dangerous is its raw honesty. Hervey lifts the
veil of Black decadence at the same time he exposes the lies and political correctness of modern day America. Continued below...
Hervey states: "I show that the Civil War was not fought over slavery and
that the demise of my race in America is not of the White man, but rather of our own making. In this book, I show how Blacks
in America ran away from physical bondage to one far worse-- mental bondage."
Recommended Reading: Confederate Military History Of North Carolina: North Carolina In The Civil War, 1861-1865. Description: The author, Prof. D. H. Hill, Jr., was the son of Lieutenant
General Daniel Harvey Hill (North Carolina produced only
two lieutenant generals and it was the second highest rank in the army) and his mother was General “Stonewall”
Jackson’s wife's sister. In Confederate Military History Of North Carolina,
Hill discusses North Carolina’s massive task of preparing and mobilizing for the conflict; the many regiments and battalions
recruited from the Old North State; as well as the state's numerous contributions during the war. Continued below...
During Hill's Tar Heel State
study, the reader begins with interesting and thought-provoking statistical data regarding the 125,000 "Old North State"
soldiers that fought during the course of the war and the 40,000 that perished. Hill advances with the Tar Heels to the first
battle at Bethel, through numerous bloody campaigns and battles--including North
Carolina’s contributions at the "High Watermark" at Gettysburg--and concludes
with Lee's surrender at Appomattox.
