I will write his name down and see what he has to say. So far this is what I have on the battle of Chickamauga. Union flags captured.
Mg. Wheeler says his men captured 18 flags, one of which was the 89th Ohio's state flag. The 89th Ohio lost their federal flag to the 54th Va of Trigg's brigade on Sep 20th, 1863.
Trigg's Brigade captured (5) flags: 22nd Michigan (both flags), 21st Ohio (both flags) and the 89th Ohio's federal flag.

The 26th/50th AL captured the 6th Ohio's Battery flag.

Anderson's Brigade: 10th Ms "took several flags", 44th Ms took (2) flags. (This brigade was in MG.Hindman's Division, Hindman reported 5-6 flags captured by this division). As you can see Anderson's Brigade captured the bulk of the div flags.

At least 40 right there. Anything labled as "several" I will leave out till I find out how many. I am sure the Regulars lost alot of flags, many were pow's. Union batteries that were swallowed up. I would say in the 50-60 range at most. Some Union regiments failed to exist after the battle.
Plus the Confederates did capture the most artillery out in the west. I believe Harper's Ferry, Sep 1862 was the most artillery captured by any Confederate army.
Have a great weekend everyone,
