        Flag of the 6th Regiment Kentucky Infantry (CSA), c. 1861 | A State Divided

        During the Civil War, a military unit's flag was marked in case it was lost or captured. Some flags, like this one, also had the names of battles and symbols for victories. Flags were important symbols to soldiers and their loved ones at home. They also served a practical purpose in war. During battle, soldiers could watch their flag to keep connected to their unit.

        This resource is part of the A State Divided: Exploring the Civil War Through Images collection.
