An unrivaled reference to the Confederate, Union, State and Volunteer flags borne into battle …


Sound trumpets! let our bloody colors wave!
And either victory, or else a grave.
– Shakespeare, Henry VI Part 3

Throughout history, armies have carried into battle field signs, usually flags, which enabled commanders to keep track of their troops and soldiers in a unit to stay together amidst the chaos of war.
But a fighting unit's flag was always more than a useful tool of war. It was the living symbol of the community and cause, an emblem guarded by the most elite troops and defended unto death.
Never was this truer than in the American Civil War, a conflict of unprecedented scale in which millions of citizen soldiers clashed over culture and identity.
Now, Easton Press presents the superb illustrated guide: Flags of The Civil War, an exclusive Collector's Edition bound in leather and accented with 22kt gold.

The 'bloody colors' of America's defining crisis.

Flags of The Civil War is a detailed and authoritative survey of the flags and ensigns flown by the regular Union and Confederate forces and the many volunteer units of the War between the States.

These pages cover the regulation, headquarters, cavalry, and navy flags of the Union forces and present a comprehensive account of the Confederacy's three national flags, battle flags – including the defining emblem of the rebelling states, the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia – naval ensigns, and battle honors.
Flags of The Civil War also includes the flags of the volunteer units who formed the vast majority of war's forces. Officially organized by states and often representing distinct communities -- such as the Union's Irish Brigade and African-American regiments – they often went into battle under unique standards of their own design.

Beautifully illustrated with over 180 new and period photographs, vintage drawings, and specially commissioned full-page color plates and featuring a full index and bibliography, Flags of The Civil War is an invaluable guide for historians, hobbyists, and collectors.

An authoritative Civil War reference in the finest Collector's Edition.

The Easton Press Collector's Edition Flags of The Civil War represents the state-of-heart in hand-crafted leather-bound bookmaking, the work of American craftsmen with an unsurpassed commitment to excellence.

The binding is of premium whole-hide leather, specially selected for beauty and permanence. The spine features the traditional raised “hubs” and is embossed with pure 22kt gold.

The acid-neutral paper is designed to reveal every detail of the beautiful illustrations and preserve these images for generations – and the pages are not merely glued but Smyth-sewn with sturdy thread, allowing the book's pages to easily open flat.

Moiré fabric endpapers, glowing gilded page ends, and deluxe heavy-weight binding boards add beauty and durability. No detail has been overlooked – there’s even a convenient satin-ribbon page-marker.

Flags of The Civil War is an essential volume – and will make a unique one-of-a-kind gift – for anyone with an interest in the history and experience of the War Between the States.
