Small Bible flag from Jeff Bridgman's inventory
Bridgman specializes in flags so it's not surprising that he
has sold many of these small artifacts over the years.
They were meant to be bookmarks in the pocket-sized
Bibles soldiers carried.
"Victory or Death"
Bridgman's site tells us that they were primarily a Southern phenomenon.
Berlin-work version (needlepoint)
9" long, 2-3/4" wide
Confiscated by Alfred Bellard, 5th New Jersey Volunteers
