Vexed by Vexillology? ----The Six Flags of the Confederacy

Tom Clemens, Hagerstown Community College professor and scholar writing on the Maryland Campaign, provides a six minute lesson on the six flags of the Confederacy. Actually its the four flags of the Confederacy with one precursor and one modern adaptation.

Here is the the YouTube link to the lesson. Tom's most recent published work is the first of two edited volumes of Ezra Carman’s account of the Maryland Campaign. Here is the link for it.
