Bicentennial Flag MemorialAs secession swept the South, various state banners were created to symbolize the "independence" movement. Soon the Confederacy found it necessary, however, to adopt an appropriate "national" flag. The first was the famous Stars and Bars. During the Battle of Bull Run it was found that this Confederate Banner looked too much like the Stars and Stripes.
