Big Red Embroidery Patch


Big Red Embroidery Souvenir Patch measures 3 x 2 inches. Prior to the Civil War, Citadel cadets on Morris Island fired at a supply ship called the “Star of the West” as it entered Charleston Harbor forcing the ship’s retreat. A “Big Red” palmetto flag flew over the cadets during this attack Jan. 9, 1861, marking a victory for them, prior to the beginning of the Civil War.
