Greg, Thanks! Hope I can use this info on my Whitfield / Ross Texas Cavalry Brigade web site.
I found a note which said a Captian Burns of Minty's Brigade had seen the report of the capture of three flags during Kilcavalry's charge to the rear. One was the 3rd Texas Cavalry Flag, the second was the Zachariah Ranger's flag and the Third was Benjamin's Infantry. The 3rd said if their flag was captured it was taken from an ambulance, as it had not been unfurled for this battle. My guess as to the other two flags is they were company flags. Have not looked into the 3rd to that depth. Will check Douglas Hale's book. May find the answer there. The capture of the flag in ambulances was described in David Evan's, Sheridan's Horsemen. Not sure how reliable eather source is. If it is in an official report from Minty's Brigade, that should confirm something?
Looked at the Mobile Battle Flags that may have been made in Georgia. Ah Commerce! Even in war time. I think Ross sent most of the flags back before they went to Tennessee, after Holley Springs and used Van Dorn's flag until his death and then used the 13 star cross after that until the end of the war. Maybe I should learn to use it's official name.
The 9th's loss of their flag after crossing an open field under deadly artillery fire, is tragic to include the wounding of the Union soldier. An then some one took it for their personal collection or worse destruction is somewhat bizar.
Do greatly appreciate your time and effort.
