This flag, often referred to as the Guilford Courthouse Flag, is an example of the diversity of American flags during the Revolutionary War period. It has the unique design elements of an elongated canton with white background and 13 blue, eight-sided stars and matching blue stripes. The eight-sided stars represent the combined forces from eight states that compromised Major General Nathanael Greene's Southern Army. This flag was present at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse, North Carolina on March 15, 1781, on the ground where Greene's combined Continental and Militia forces halted the British conquest of the Carolinas and turned Cornwallis's then decimated army back to seaport towns to their final defeat.
