Format: Paperback
Devereaux D. Cannon is an expert on vexillology (the study of flags). This book offers a history, profiles, design specs and an overview of the various flags (national flags, battle flags and naval ensigns) that were utilized by the Confederacy. The book features several pages with glossy photos of the various flags of the Confederacy. It features even the little known flags. Cannon's book has inspired flag maker's to revive the old flags in addition to the 3 national flags, the battle flag and the naval ensign. This book is must have for flag gurus, Civil War buffs and southern partisans.

Mr. Cannon has produced an excellent compilation of the flags used by the South during the US Civil War. I highly recommend it as a history and geography teacher. As an author myself I appreciate the style of presentation he uses in this book. I also recommend his companion book, "Flags of the Union".

Format: Paperback
I own both this book and the matching one of the Union. Both of these books belong in any Civil War hhistorians collection. Not only is this a good book for those who have found a new interset in the Civil War, but a well informed historian will ejoy this book too. The photos of the armaments, uniforms and flags will complete any book collection on the Civil War. This and the matching Union books are must buys.

I just like historic flags, Confederate, Union, Colonial American, States, whathaveyou. This book is nice because it actually provides background instead of just quick notes.
