The Confederate Battle Flag is not the Stars and Bars

I was incorrect when I referred to the Confederate Battle Flag as the Stars and Bars.  This is the actual flag of the Confederate Government which was known as the Stars and Bars

I discovered this reading a piece by Boyd Cathey where he discusses the controversy surrounding the Battle Flag and delves into Civil War revisionism in general.  I’d urge people to read it to get a better understanding of why the Civil War took place.
