I can also custom make flags of your choosing. Confederate Army of Tennessee and Trans-Mississippi dept unit flags are my main interest.

Thank you very much for your time.

Here are pictures of my Missouri battle flag. There was a chapter on Trans-Mississippi flags in "Battle Flags of the Confederate Army of Tennessee" by Howard Michael Madaus in which Madaus goes into some detail about these flags. I don't know where this particular flag is at this time but I have seen the 9th Battalion Missouri Volunteer Sharpshooters flag and used it's construction details as a basis for my flag. I have done extensive research on this particular flag.
There are variations in the dimensions and details of this pattern of flag, for example, the 9th Battalion flag had ties where the one that I made has a sleeve.

Here are links to pictures of my flag and a picture of the 9th Missouri Battalion flag.
