Very interesting Shawn, I did not know that the "Fighting" 69th lost any colors. They were for the most part, Irish.Thank you sir.
My Great Grandfather served in the 90th Illinois Infantry as you may or may not know. Anyway Colonel Timothy O'Merah (SP) was the commander of the 90th. He was recommended for his Colonelcy by Col. Cocoran who he served under previously. Small world
