Bragg's Corps battle flags were made by Henry Cassidy, a private contractor in New Orleans, Louisiana. A sail maker by trade, Cassidy made Louisiana state flags, large First National Confederate flags, and other flags for the Army's fleet of gunboats. He made more than 125 flags for the Western army and Bragg's Corps in three separate groups. This flag was part of the third group, which were rectangular with a wide pink border on all four sides, and bearing twelve six-pointed stars.
