Dobbins' 1st Regiment Arkansas Volunteer Cavalry

This cotton flag has a dark blue field with a red "upright" cross. The cross is 6" wide. There are 13 white, 5-pointed, 3" stars on the crossbars. The leading edge has been doubled back to form a sleeve, 2" wide when flat with pairs of ties at each end for securing the flag to its staff. Captured by Indiana troops at Tulip, Ark., in 1863, it was returned to Arkansas in 1962 by the Governor of Indiana.
