I am hoping someone might know what became of the battle flag of the 9th (Gantt's) Tennessee Cavalry Battalion. The color bearer went to Texas after the war and used to bring it to reunions in Maury County. I would be interested to see any possible reproductions, old photographs, descriptions, etc. It is entirely possible that the banner which survived capture at Fort Donelson (by virtue of the color bearer, J.J. Delk, sewing it into his jacket), a couple of major battles (the Atlanta campaign, Bentonville, etc.) and many little skirmishes has succumbed to the ravages of time or was possibly entombed with trooper Delk. Myself and at least one other interested party would welcome any information.
I would also like to know of the whereabouts or at least some pertinent information about the battle flag of the 19th ( or the 9th as it was known in the field)Tennessee Cavalry Regiment under Col. J.B. Biffle.
