The controversial Confederate Battle Flag has been a potent symbol for many Americans since the conclusion of the Civil War. Some are repulsed by the negative history attached to the flag, others are inspired by its representation of the Southern spirit of independence. Regardless of its connotation, it is clear that the Confederate Battle Flag is a powerful symbol for many.
The history of the flag as it is popularly known today can be traced to the Confederate Army of the Potomac, led by the legendary General Robert E. Lee. The initial design was as much a strategic move as an attempt to separate the Southern cause from Union symbols. The initial national flag of the Confederacy was very similar to the American flag; this caused massive confusion in the first clash between Southern and Northern troops at Bull Run. In response, several Southern armies created their own unique battle flags, and it was the flag for Lee’s army that conceived the symbol we know today. Lee’s prowess as a general and the numerous victories caused the flag to become very popular among Confederate soldiers, and Army of Northern Virginia’s battle flag eventually became the centerpiece of the new national flag of the Confederacy. After the Civil War drew to a close, the battle flag became a symbol during Reconstruction, representing the fallen Confederate soldiers of the Civil War. This sentiment lives on today, as many look to the flag to represent their pride in Southern history and grit.
