Confederate colors

My diary North and South, by Sir William Howard Russell, 1863
A small war is waged by the police recently appointed by the Federal authorities against the women, who exhibit much ingenuity in expressing their animosity to the stars and stripes--dressing the children, and even dolls, in the Confederate colors, and wearing the same in ribbons and bows.

The Rebellion Record: edited by Frank Moore, 1863
Newport, Kentucky, June 20.--A daughter of Captain Semmes, commander of the famous rebel pirate Sumter, attended a wedding a Saint Paul's Church, night before last, enveloped in a scarf of rich material, bearing the confederate colors, red and white, arranged in bars or stripes.--Cincinati Commercial, June 20.
