VERY FINE. THIS 9-STAR CONFEDERATE FLAG WITH "CHATHAM ARTILLERY" IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL CIVIL WAR PATRIOTIC DESIGNS.

The ninth star represents the admission of Arkansas, which was followed only three days later by North Carolina. Due to the short time period there were fewer 9-Star Confederate Patriotic designs produced than any other flag design (7 thru 13 stars). Surviving examples are rare, particularly with the regimental slogan.
