The breakthrough accured between the 25th Ohio and 75th Ohio. I believe one or both of those regiments had to have lost a flag. I have asked the Ohio state historical people on the 25th Ohio, 75th Ohio and any other Ohio regiment that I thought might have lost a flag. They responded with a ahh we dont know. I find it so difficult to get any information out of these people. The first question they ask is "why do you want to know, are you writing a book" or "are you for the south or something".
My first post on here was about "Union flags captured at Gettysburg". I believe the Union lost alot more flags then what is known. Howard's Corps on Day 1, Reynold's Corps on Day 1 is really what I would like to get to the bottom of.
Yes Hays did take 4 flags, but which ones is the question.
I take my hat off to anyone in here that has or is working on Union flags captured at Gettysburg. It is truely difficult...good luck.
