Missouri Battle Flag
Consisting of a rich blue field and deep red trim on three sides and white Christian Cross off-center towards the hoist side, the Missouri Battle flag was so named because it was carried almost exclusively by Missouri regiments. It is notable that some prestigious Missouri fighting units such as the 1st Missouri Cavalry (dismounted) and Pindall’s 9th Battalion of Missouri Sharpshooters also served with this flag as their colors. It is estimated that over 60,000 Missouri Confederate Men fought under this flag and it was carried during many major battles such as Pea Ridge, Shiloh, Atlanta, and Vicksburg just to name a few. A religious Christian theme is noticeable in the design of many Civil War era battle flags both on the Union and Confederate sides as most of the men involved were devout Christians and the symbolism was important as well as inspiring.
