Description

This is a flag of the 10th Tennessee Regiment. Because of the large number of Irishmen in the unit the 10th was called the Sons of Erin (Erin meaning Ireland). It was called the Bloody 10th because of its casualties at the Battle of Ft. Donelson, about 50 miles northwest of Nashville. It fought to the end of the war, engaging in many brutal battles including Vicksburg. This flag was sewn by the Ladies Soldiers Friend Society of Nashville. It was green and gold, with an Irish harp. It has the embroidered words “Sons of Erin” and “Go Where Glory Waits You.”

 Beautiful indoor, ceremonial or parade cotton flag.
