Ras Stirman's Sharpshooter Regiment

Colonel Ras Stirman had a battlion of Arkansas cavalry up till Iuka and Corinth Battles. Prior to those battles Company I, 6th Texas Cavalry and Company H, 9th Texas Cavalry were attached to Stirman's unit to complete a sharpshooter regiment. Did they have a flag at Corinth and Hatchie Bridge?
This unit was probably one that almost made it to Rosecarn's Headquarters. They were crossing Hatchie Bridge when the fireing started. My GGF who was in Company I, 6th Texas Cavalry, broke his arm, either from artillery or from jumping down the imbankment. Either way He was captured.
