Re: MOC "Colours of the Gray" flags captured.

Hi Ken
>>>>Joe,
The flag depicted is a well done reproduction of a 2nd bunting ANV type flag.
Unfortunately this was not the type of flag that would have been carried by
the 34th Va Cav Btn. The 2nd bunting ANV flags were issued in Spring of
1862. The 34th was not created until Dec 1862.
My guess as to just what they carried would be a first national. But, that's just a guess!
I do have two eyewitness accounts describing the flag of the 34th dated in
Oct. 1863. Both describe it as a "battle flag" and both state that it is in
poor condition. (See Mosgrove "Kentucky Cavaliers in Dixie", pg. 69 and
Edward Guerrant Diary, pg. 341)
It is known that the unit was presented with a "battleflag" by Gen. Stuart
in Dec. 1863 (See Richmond Inquirer, Feb. 5, 1864) If Stuart's flag was
a Depot-manufactured flag; then it is highlylikely that it would have had to
be a 3rd bunting flag. One like WD#171.
But none of this answers the question of just what unit lost WD#171.
We know that it cannot be the 32nd or 34th Va Cav Battalions.
Does it belong to the 36th Btn? If not, then who??

I know the wikipedia website is not a very good source for info but there it reads that the 32nd's flag captured by Pvt. Edward R. Hanford of the 2nd U.S. Cavalry, Company H, during the American Civil War,at the Battle of Tom's Brook on 9 October 1864 [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_R._Hanford

My 4xGrandfather join the 34th VA Cav in Oct. 62 in Jeffersonville Tazewell county, which is now called the town of Tazewell, in Tazewell County from were I live. The house that he signed up at still stands and is in great shape right acroos the creek from the state Hospital.

But as for the flag pictured below it was the first one Bill used, Bill also made a 3rd Btn. as well. It was bases on the flag the Stuart presented to them, based on Madaus reviewing & studying of flags. No one knows were the real 34ths flag went but with howies go ahead Bill made the flag shown bleow, and has been used from the 70's - present day in numerous events and photo shoots articles . Other then that, that is all I know about the flag and if the real 34ths flag shows up then we will go over to it. Everything that is on the repro flag below is what we all have to go by giving it was advised to be made by H. Madaus

Thank You
