To the Palmetto Sharpshooters. The 9th had ceased to exist by the time of Williamsburg in May. It failed to reorganize and went out of existence about 20 Apr 62. My question is "What was a company flag doing at the front?" A standing order from early July 1861 was for all such company flags to be sent to a depot in Richmond. Whoever kept it was in disobedience of orders, but it was probably not that uncommon..
