the stars and bars were replaced with the battleflag and that is what most people associate with the confederacy. the war was not fought over slavery only 11% of the souths white population owned slaves as they were very expensive, so the majority of the common footsoldier didnot own slaves. those footsoldiers followed the battleflag into combat so it was under that flag that they lost their lives.
