General Maury's headquarters flag
This silk flag made for Confederate general Dabney Herndon Maury by women in Mobile, Alabama, features a Christian theme with its prominent white Latin cross. As commander of the District of the Gulf in the Civil War's last two years, Maury became known for his tenacious defense of the port of Mobile, Alabama. This flag was flown at the general's headquarters during the siege of Mobile. The city finally fell to Union forces on April 12, 1865.
