In Response To: Re: 1st Louisiana Infantry ()

Thank you much! I read your revision but just did not recall that incident. I was not looking for it necessarily but found it interesting that the colorbearer returned it to Richmond and gave it to someone instead of seeing that it was returned to the regiment and then years later evidently could not remember who he gave it to. That's pretty strange. I don't know if he ever returned to the unit but I'm sure that if he did he caught hell for not having the flag with him after hiding it so successfully in prison. There's more to that story but don't know if we will ever know the answer. Maybe Greg Biggs or Ken Legendre can tell us if the flag has ever turned up. Thanks.
