Guilford Flag

The flag of the North Carolina Militia carried at Camden, King’s Mountain, Cowpens, Hillsborough, and Guilford against the British. The costly campaign led to the final defeat of Lord Cornwallis. The flag has 13 blue stars, each with eight points, against a white background. It also has blue and red stripes, rather than the usual red and white ones. Presented by Samuel Spencer Jackson and Herbert Worth Jackson, a former president.
