>>>>Do you or anyone else here concur with that?
Yes I concur 100%, 3 flags taken at Battery D
>>>>>I have not focused on these flags much. I will have to re-read Heath's report as it seems that his regiment was split and fought in two places at Helena.
I do not have Ed Bearss' essay in the Arkansas Historical Quarterly for this battle - what do his maps show by chance?<<<<<
I do not have his article but the map in the OR's is very accurate when compared to reports of both sides. I have walked these hills numerous times from Bttry A to Battry D and Brooks site even further south as well as the Conf approaches to the city. When reading the other reports regarding the fight down in town, the Missouri troops captured and colors are mentioned in that portion of the battle so I think there is one and possibly two taken there.
