The confusion caused by the similarity in the flags of the Union and the Confederacy was of great concern to Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard after the first Battle of Manassas. He suggested Combat Shooter's Handbookthat that the Confederate national flag be changed to something completely different, in order to avoid confusion in battles in the future.

One, the National flag, and the second one being a battle flag, with the battle flag being completely different from the United States flag.

moral right to use this flag – it is a flag of honor, designed by the confederacy to distinguish itself from the Union.

In fact, under attack, it still flies over the South Carolina capitol building. The South denies any relation to these hate groups and denies them the right to use the flags of the confederacy for any purpose.
