Postwar Georgia State flag (previously identified as Georgia flag). According to the donor, made and presented by the ladies of northern Georgia to an unidentified company of northern Georgians. (However, this history is believed erroneous, as the pattern corresponds with Georgia State flag, 1879-1902; therefore it is probably postwar.)
"...a 'Cracker' flag....called a 'Cracker flag' because the people of the northern part of the state are called 'Crackers' and the flag wasmade by the ladies of that part of the state and presented to a company of soldiers from that neighborhood. There were no soldiers more gallant than they." (accession ledger)
