4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not quite exact in detail 26 décembre 2011
Par Jay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
One must be aware that these are illustrations, paintings perhaps, of how the flags would have appeared when new. No stains, rips or holes. Also, unlike photographs, they are the interpretation of what the author saw. Do not mistake me, they are extremely well done. I would even call them "accurate" but they do not reach exact. There are some of these I have seen and photographed in the Texas Confederate Museum and I was further allowed to photograph some retired to the museum's workroom & not normally available for public viewing while awaiting further restoration/preservation. One other caveat that should be noted is that, my copy of the book anyway, was published in 1995 and a lot of research has been done since then.
Some examples of mistakes. One, he appears to use a standard image of a perfectly formed 5 point star throughout (at least where such stars were appropriate). But, many of these stars were cut and sewn by hand and were less than so perfectly symmetric. The battleflag of the 4th Texas Vol. Inf (Hood's Brigade, ANV) is one example. It's stars are fatter and blunter of point arms. The larger central star is much fatter than represented in the book. Also, while the author takes care in orientating the direction of point in the stars, in the case of the 4th's flag just described, the large central star is depicted upside down. Also, another flaw in it is that the white staff side material is shown of equal size with the other three gold borders. It is actually thinner and the nail holes are visible, though that detail might be forgiven. The 4th's flad also had a streamer that might have been included as well as it's bullet holed and engraved spear point, also in the museums possession.
Then there's the wonderfully ornate 20th Reg't Texas Vol.s flag. This flag was probably detailed by a professional sign painter. It has many decorative lines, swirls and small decorative... details are all I can think to call them. The artist has failed to recreate many of those wonderful details exactly so that really, the reader only gets a good if not exact idea of how the flag truly appears. I am comparing a photo I took of the flag to the illustration as I write this. Actually, the illustration appears more hand painted than does the original flag. Again, the actual flag's stars lack the exact symmetry of the illustration's.
there are also some errors in the text.
Over all, this work is really excellent. No such work ever can be 100% accurate and I point out its flaws only to inform, not to criticize. But it is due to those flaws that I give the book only 4 stars. A nice touch would have been inset of photographs of surviving flags where available and as comparison to the illustrations.
The book itself is good sized, 8.5" x 11," well constructed book printed on heavy stock suitable for such heavy illustrations and with a dust cover. (Though the the artist's painting used may also be in error, depicting a flag used at Gettysburg more closely resembling that lost at Sharpsburg/Antietam.)
I do recommend this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book on Confedate flags 28 mars 2004
Par Christopher - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is a very good book for anyone interested in Confederate flag. Many good illustrations and good history provided for each flag. It provides much information on Confederate Texas flags that have not been given much press. I strongly recommend this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Outstanding history of Texas Civil War Flags 1 octobre 2013
Par Joe Owen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This outstanding book is a valuable historical reference book on the Confederate Battle Flags flown by the brigades, regiments, and government when Texas was in the Confederacy from 1861 to 1865. Author Allan K. Sumrall did in depth research about the flags and the units who flew them. The available flags he researched are now in museums, historical.societies, and private collections but the author was able to give colored illustrations and brief history of each flag flown by Texans during the Civil War.
The book is very much like Glenn Dedmondt's outstanding series of Civil War Flags of Alabama, Arkansas, Missiouri, North Carolina, and South Carolina. However, Sumrall doesn't say if the flags were captured by Union Forces during the war or were never captured. He does make note that many of the flags listed (as of 1994) are in need of restoration and preservation. The colored illustrations and photos are an excellent addition of how the flags looked when they were flown. From cavalry units, to infantry regiments, to militias each unit has their flag shown and their history told. This is an OUTSTANDING book that is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to any Civil War library and history of Texas!
