42nd Virginia Infantry December 1863 flag


John Chapla's book on the 42nd Virginia Infantry (HE Howard series) states that this regiment received a flag via requisition on December 21st, 1863 through Col. Robert Withers.

I checked his CSR online and cannot find that requisition, not could I find it through the quartermaster, adjutants and other staff officers of the regiment. Does anyone know where this flag requisition might be found? The citation in the book evidently was not footnoted.
