Re: 300-400 Captured Flags at War Dept. in 1864

Shawn,

The Union War Department received less than 600 flags during the war. Hundreds of other flags captured from CS units were never sent to the War Department.

None taken at Vicksburg were sent; none taken at Ft. Donelson; none taken at Corinth, for example.
