          I have read several articles from the site First Sergeant linked this article over the years. Excellent stuff that makes you think.

            Brilliant. Thanks for posting.

            The MVT version of the Battle Flag is on order and should be here soon. It’s the subdued version I posted sometime before, like the new Stars and Bars MVT patch. Once I get them in, students will have a choice of which one they want.

              My great great grandfather and his 2 brothers all served in Co. I 3rd Louisiana Inf Reg. They participated in battles at Pea Ridge, Iuka, Corinth and Vicksburg. He was wounded, along with one of his brothers, at the battle of Iuka, MS. Returned to duty. They were captured at Vicksburg and eventually paroled.

              Yeah, I will wear the Southern Cross in their honor.

                Kitty,

                That puts us as neighbors. Mine was in the 18th Louisiana Infantry Regiment, Company C – Simeon Lemoine, enlisted at Iberia.

                For those not aware – at the beginning of the War for Southern Independence, there were no POW camps. So when captured, you were paroled – agreed not to fight for 1 year and released. It wasn’t until Grant came in that rules changed. Simeon was paroled twice (captured at the 2nd Battle of Bayou Teche (4/1863), the 2nd time we found the parole papers (6/1865, Alexandria) but not where captured – most likely as a result of the end of the war.

                          My great great grandfather was with the 34th Arkansas at the Battle of Prairie Grove. He lost an arm to a cannonball, a week after the Yankees burned his mother’s house down.

                          If anyone wonders what the South was fighting for, now you know.
