27th South Carolina Colors

When Beauregard took command of the Charleston area, he found that flags in this unusual design had been adopted by at least four local garrison regiments. The flag was modeled on a proposed national color recommended by the Charleston Mercury in March of 1862. The shield in the center bears the legend Secessionville in honor of the battle of June 16, 1862, and the initial of the regiment's old designation as the Charleston Light Infantry. 

The battle flag is also from the 27th South Carolina and was part of the production of the Charleston Depot system. The flag was carried once the regiment moved from the garrison of Charleston to the Army of Northern Virginia and eventually to the Army of Tennessee in 1865. I have attached an image of the 16th South Carolina Flag, also a product to the Charleston production.

Four stickers are included with each purchase (two of each colors).
