Provenance Sr. 1st Lt. T. Sanders Sale [or T. L. Sale] wore this red sash as part of his Confederate uniform during the war. It was made from a ladies' silk shawl and dyed its present color; the donor has a faint memory that the sash was originally a bright red color, but was dyed dark brown so that it would not be so plainly seen by Northern sharpshooters.
