The Maltese cross is not associated with the Confederacy of the United States. The Maltese Cross was likely introduced through the Universities such as Lousiana Tech University formed in 1880, via Phi Kappa Sigma (The Skulls) Fraternity Chapters. Later as the Sharpshooter badge in the United States Marine Corps. Many excellent sharpshooters come from the Southern United States as they have yet to acquire the full benefit of being part of an industrialized Nation after 150 years. It became a symbol of violence and Racisim in the fashion of Eugenicsists and later the Neo-Nazi resurgence and occassionally sported by Biker Clubs.
