11th Mississippi Infantry Regiment
September 17, 1862 Battle of Sharpsburg (Antietam)
The color bearer was killed and the regimental colors lost.
April 2, 1865 Breakthrough and Collapse at Petersburg
The regiment was flanked on both sides and retreated to Hatcher’s Run, which was unfordable due to heavy rains. Lieutenant Colonel Shannon and most of the regiment were forced to surrender, although some escaped by swimming the dangerously swollen waters. Color bearer Frank Hope tore the colors to pieces and threw the staff into the stream.
