Civil War - Uniform of Lt McGowan, 14th South Carolina Infantry

From a recent auction catalog. Notice that McGowan's choice of flag to illustrate his letter home is not the so-called Stars and Bars widely (mis)used today, but the original Stars and Bars.

I didn't know about the flag. Amazing how you take things for granted
