On this page we present an illustration containing a Rebel Flag Pic.   The Rebel Flag is seen flying over the camp. This pic is from an original August 31, 1861 Edition of Harper's Weekly, the most popular illustrated newspaper of the day. The Rebel Flag seen in the image is the "Stars and Bars".

There is a reasonable breeze, so the flag can be seen clearly. Notice that the flag appears to be the 8 star version, as is the case in many of the illustrations presented on this sit. The illustration is captioned, "Camp Life in the Confederate Army, Mississippians Practicing with the Bowie Knife."  Friends, these are some pretty nasty looking Bowie knives in the hands of individuals obviously skilled in the fine art of precision cutlery target practice. The men appear to be well equipped and they have plenty of supplies.  They are enjoying the knife play, and they all have really big Bowie Knives and it is obvious that they know how to use them.  A black servant can be seen working over a camp fire to prepare a meal for the soldiers.  He appears in fine shape as well. Other Rebel soldiers can be seen playing cards, talking, or just relaxing on the ground.  This is a great period illustration of Camp Life in the Rebel army.
