The Ensign from the Alabama at the Tennessee State Museum probably was made by the seamen aboard the raider.
Checking the Roster of the ship when she was sunk off Cherbourg, there were 22 from the British Isles and 3 from Prussia. Data for a number of crew members not given in the roster on the CSS Alabama Association website.
