Is that not what I stated in one of my other post. I said that the 32nd was not even there at the time of the battle nor either was the 34th there. Then someone else stated that the 32nd was getting morfed into another unitso how could they have lost there flag. I then replied back were they are a new unit now they really would not be a use for the 32nd's battle flag then right, hence why it was captured from the wagon.
"my thoughts 3-25-12 if the confederates were flanked at Tom's Brook and they started to retreat, No one puts the Flag Barrier on the ends of the ranks, they are always in the middle of the front rank, so as a soldier can look and find there unit and fall in behind it. So how could some one capture a flag if they are not near it. "Confederate losses were 20 killed, 50 wounded, and 280 missing or captured. The Union losses were 10 killed and 47 wounded. If every wagon and ambulance was captured then most likely the flags had to be in the wagons, if truely every wagon and ambulances was captured at Toms' Brook"
"Confederate losses were 20 killed, 50 wounded, and 280missing or captured. The Union losses were 10 killed and 47 wounded.From the losses suffered by both sides, one can see just how one-sided this battle really was."
What we all have to do is find out what confederate units were under Rosser and Lunsford L. Lomax at Tom's Brook. Because 8-11 confederate battle flags was captured depending on what site you go for information. Everything is mostly on Custer then flows on over to the battle of Cedar Creek on Oct. 19 1864.
