CMH thread: Re: {Civil War] Texican Flag
One of the earlier threads, entitled as the above "Re: {Civil War] Texican Flag" had recently been brought to the front by the webmaster, presumably seeking new information? It had featured a tri-color Texas militia flag which the author and several respondents were trying to identify, but which the non-period lettering appeared to be silk-screen printed rather than stenciled or embroidered as would have been expected for a CW-period flag. Respondents also didn't think the flag was as old as it had appeared to be since the militia unit had originally dated from the Texas War of Independence, 1835-36. Although I attempted to upload a comment, the comment failed to load but I had simply wished to offer the suggestion that perhaps the origin of this flag was of a more recent date? Chiefly, I was curious whether anyone had considered if this banner was a Confederate Veteran's Camp flag? The flag's shape, purposefully elongated in the vertical direction simply appeared more like a banner, like one that would be hung on the wall or carried in a procession rather than a flag that flew on a staff. What other respondents may not have known is that the United Confederate Veterans (UCV) held a reunion at Houston on May 22-25, 1895 in which my great-grandfather (a Texas UCV member) attended, and he brought home one of the reunion badges.
