"Among the most misunderstood artifacts associated with the American Civil War are those related to flagstaffs. Because of the similarities of the hardware used during the 19th and 20th centuries, it is often difficult to establish provenance and age of these pieces. Through the use of both dug and non dug examples, along with contemporary photographs, the author provides information that corrects some previously misidentified pieces while providing a solid foundation as to what hardware was used during the War Between the States"—Publisher.
