‘Advance the flag of Dixie’: a hopeful Confederate group of 1861 Actual photographs of the Confederate flags raised within the Confederate fortifications are rare indeed. This photograph was taken by Edwards, the New Orleans artist, inside the Confederate lines at Pensacola, Florida. The cannon, at whose ‘ringing voices’ Pike sang ‘The South's great heart rejoices,’ are shining in the warm Southern sunlight that brightens the flag in the color-bearer's hands. All is youth and hope.
