I have been wondereing if there was a flag for the 3rd Battalion, MS Infantry ( State Troops). My great-great-grandfather served in Companies H,B. 3rd Battlion,MS Infantry( State Troops) under Gen. Burgin at Vicksburg.
I have a book on order from Amazon.com about the flags of the Confederacy( I thingk that it includes state troops), but don;t think that I will live long enough to receive it. Anyway, i AM curious to find out if the State Troops - not the regular regiments - had their own flags. It would be nice to find out, as it would add another piec to the history of my family's military service to South and to their state.Any bit of information will be greatly aopreciated.
