Major George Phineas Gilliss had served in the Mexican-American War and then settled in California. At a Sacramento 4th of July celebration, Major Gilliss unwrapped this flag from a walking stick and marched around waving the flag. Afterwards, J.W. Biderman took the flag from him and then dared anyone to come and take it.
The display at the California State Capitol Museum states it is
"the only known Confederate flag captured in California during the Civil War."
