The original flag of the 2nd Ark Bn was picked up from its deserted camp along with one from the Miss unit that was brigaded with it. This is documented in a period source that I cant remember right now. It stated that the Union unit found two flags in the deserted camps, one that of an Ark company and the other of the Miss unit, I believe it was the 22nd but am recalling from memory so it may be another, but either way it was the Miss unit that was brigaded with the 2nd Ark. An attorney in NW Arkansas purchased the flag a while back and I made contact with him regarding the flag. It is a first national style.
