This flag belonged to the Dallas Artillery (also known as Hart's Battery), of Arkansas. While crossed cannons often meant recognition of a captured battery, this particular flag has the decoration to designate it as artillery. A nice example of a First National that has been recently conserved and resides in Arkansas, as it should. The museum notes it as one of just two artillery flags in existence from Arkansas.
