The above artwork, or logo, is for the Manassas and Prince William County Civil War Sesquicentennial. According to this story, the logo will be used to promote events and also appear on such places as t-shirts. Now, I love a good t-shirt, if it’s a nice heavy material and a dark color and so long as large pieces are consigned to the back of the shirt where they belong – small logos in front over the breast are good. If my stringent requirements are met I just may have to pick up one of these next time I’m down that way.
Note that the logo includes the First National Confederate flag, not the battle flag. I think that’s appropriate for a number of reasons, including the fact that the latter banner did not exist at the time of the First (and most important) Battle of Bull Run. The fact that the Georgia soldier depicted was not present for either battle at Manassas doesn’t bother me.
