TN Company Flag Captured at Grocery Store

Truly a shame that it doesn't identify the company it belonged to.

Rebel Flag Captured.

On last Monday Captain Gibbs of the Sixty-ninth Ohio, on information given them, searched the grocery of a Mr. Buddeke on Market street, and found a large and elegant rebel flag, which formerly belonged to one of the rebel companies of this place, concealed in the upper story of the building. The flag is said to be a very handsome one, and there were probably a large quantity of infractions of third commandment when it was seized.
