Create Your Own Colors
Flags were important to soldiers from both the Union and Confederate armies. The flag meant everything to the soldiers, as it was a symbol of what they were fighting for during the Civil War. It was to be protected at all costs. If you would like more information about flags, before you create your own, visit Teaching Tools.
Songs were sung among the soldiers about the flag:
"Yes we'll rally 'round the flag,
boys, we'll rally once again,
Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom,
We will rally from the hillside,
we'll gather from the plain, Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom."
