Thanks for your responce to my question. I still don't know if Major Hamilton was close enough to speak to General Semmes because I would think he could not leave his gun during the battle to do that. Major Hamilton did say that he saw an officer borne from the field in a blanket and reconized him as General Semmes...I wonder if the blanket was a state flag and not the national colors ?????
Thank you for the Surgeon's name. I am trying to find out just what happened at the time General Semmes was wounded and what happened up to the time he died on the 10th of July.
Again, thank you for your help,
