This is a CONFEDERATE 17TH GEORGIA INFANTRY FLAG. It is NEW. The regiment was raised from eight different counties in Georgia (mostly in the western part of the state) and officially organized in Atlanta from August 12 to August 15, 1861, and armed with British Enfield pattern rifles. The regiment's first commander was Col. Henry L. Benning, a prominent lawyer and judge in Muscogee County (Columbus area). The Flag is COMPLETELY SEWN. It is NOT PRINTED. This Flag is made from 100% COTTON. It has a Cotton Canvas Header Sleeve and Ties as did the Original. The Flag Size is 51 Inches by 51 Inches. This Flag is BRAND NEW and NEVER USED. It is Excellent Quality and is Correct in All Details. The Actual Flag is Sewn. Our Flags are COMPLETELY SEWN as were the Originals. We DO NOT Iron On, Stencil or Glue on Flag Components as some others do. Beware of Cheap Imitations claiming to be sewn. This is a Great Flag for Reenactors or any Civil War History Buff. It makes a Great Gift.
