Description

This is the battle flag of the 21st Mississippi Infantry. The 11 stars represent Confederate States. The 21st participated in a very famous charge of Barksdale’s Mississippi Brigade.

“I am sure that it was the grandest charge that was ever seen by mortal man.”

These were the words of Union Colonel Worthen, whose men tried and failed to stand at Gettysburg against the Mississippi brigade commanded by Barksdale. The 21st Mississippi Regiment was part of that brigade. Worthen’s description of the event included the following:

“Nothing we could do seemed to confuse or halt Barksdale’s veterans. We federals had five regiments fronting Barksdale’s small brigade, and these were supported by two additional regiments stationed just behind the five… but nothing daunted Barksdale and his men. You just came on, and on, and on, and when you came in gun shot of us, the carnage you inflicted on us boys in blue would be impossible to detail… they are the bravest men I ever met or ever expect to meet.”
