About Those Flags

Should you feel an urge to learn more about Confederate battle flags, the Washington and Lee University Library can lend a hand.

We just acquired a couple of books which are of particular interest:

  • We now have an e-book copy of John Coski’s 2005 Confederate Battle Flag: America’s Most Embattled Emblem, certainly one of the most respected histories on the topic.  We also have a printed copy (which always seems to be checked out).
  • And we also have two copies of what must be the most recently-published book on the topic, The Confederacy’s First Battle Flag: The Story of the Southern Cross, written by W&L alumnus Kent Masterson Brown.

You can view a list of these and releated books in the library’s collections by clicking on this catalog link.
