I was in LA state near Port Hudson a few weeks back.
My son was participating in a period costume dinner and dance while we were there.
The walls were decked out with a variety of flags. This is one I did not recognize. I assume it is one of the State Flags from during the ACW?

Does anyone know which one it is please?


Here he is dancing away!

I've always wondered if their appointment of Braxton Bragg as the head of the new Republic's military had anything to do with it lasting only 2 weeks.
