I am still thinking flags in Nashville and Franklin, and wondered if someone could help me confirm what the brigade or unit flags would have looked like at the Battle of Franklin in late 1864 for Cockrell's Missouri Brigade of French's Division, specifically the 2nd-6th Consolidated.
Would that have still been one of the Van Dorne flags at that point, or did the "standardization" to the Augusta Depot pattern catch up with those units by then?
I did research this site, and the only reference I found was in a post from July 2007 discussing flags lost and captured by Illinois units:
"97th Illinois----------Fort Blakely, Alabama captured a flag, HQ flag of MG.French Division. Also a Missouri-brigade flag, BG.Cockrell.?"
Any idea where I could get some information as to what this "Missouri-bridage flag" looked like?
Thanks for your usual courtesies and scholarliness, etc etc!
