Help us solve the mystery of this flag

Help solve the mystery of this flag

The flag shown below is part of the collection of artifacts from the War Between The States at the Missouri State Museum.  The flag obviously represents Beauregard's Rifles, but that is all the state museum staff knows about the flag.  In their research has the know that most regiments known to be called "Beauregard's Rifles" orginated in Virginia.

Does anyone know of a C.S.A. Unit represented under this flag?  Even better question; how did it get to Missouri?

If you have ideas or answers, send them here.
