SAVANNAH [GA] REPUBLICAN, June 2, 1863, p. 1, c. 3

A Beautiful Flag.óWe have been shown a splendid battle flag, made for the Sixteenth North Carolina regiment, by Miss R. C. Semon, of this city.

The flag is of double silk, fringed with silver tinsel. Upon either side are marked in white silk the names of eleven battle fields where the regiment has won for itself a noble name: Raices' Mill, Ox Hill, Fredericksburg, Frazer's Farm, Harper's Ferry, Seven Pines, Cedar Run, Sharpsburg, Mechanicsville, Manassas and Shepherdstown. The name of Chancellorsville is to be added to the list, as the regiment was engaged in that fierce battle, and there the Colonel and Lieutenant Colonel were both wounded, having hitherto escaped unhurt through all previous mentioned battles.

The cost of the flat is one thousand dollars, and is one of the most beautiful we have ever seen.óRich. Enquirer.
