Occasionally called "the Betsy Ross flag of the Confederacy" the first General Lee Headquarters battle flag is said to be sown by General Lee's wife and daughters. Legend has it that it was sewn because the original confederate flag was said to look so similar that it confused some confederate troops to accidentally fire at other confederates during the First Battle of Manassas. This flag has thirteen stars, representing the eleven states of the confederacy and two states which had secessionist factions (Missouri and Kentucky). The stars are arranged in a style which is supposed to represent the arc of the covenant by some records. This flag served as the headquarters flag of General Robert E. Lee from June of 1862 through the summer of 1863.
