    Bible Flag Made From a Confederate Flag Captured at Columbus, Kentucky, June 14, 1861 by the 8th Illinois Volunteer Infantry. The flag measures approximately 3 ½" x 1 ½" and is constructed using four hand-sewn fragments of a first national Confederate flag captured by the 8th Illinois Volunteer Infantry. The flag is pinned to the reverse of a 3 ¼" x 4" section of contemporary cigar advertisement which has been captioned, in pencil: "Facsimile of and made from a rebel flag captured by Co. "E" 8th Illinois Vol. Inf. At Columbus June 14th 1861. Property of Geo. W. Hand who was a member of said Co. and present at the time of capture". A unique souvenir with great provenance.
