Cavalry guidon (flag) of the "St. Johns Rangers," Company B, 2nd Florida Cavalry (C.S.A)
Made of silk, the forked-tail flag bears thirteen stars in a triangular pattern. The colorful banner was an example of a unique, finely made flag, probably presented to the unit by women related to soldiers in the unit. The guidon is associated with Captain Winston J. T. Stephens, who commanded the company.
