From the April, 1909 edition of the magazine:
“C. D. Eastland, Louisville, Miss.: ‘If the Federal soldier who captured the flag of the 13th Mississippi Regiment April 6, 1865, in the battle of Harper’s Farm or Sailor’s Creek will write to me, I shall be glad to tell him who shot him through the right shoulder as he ran off with the flag.”
C.D. Eastland (according to Jess McLean’s book) was Charles Derille Eastland, of Co. A (B). There were several battle flags of the 13th, so many, indeed, that the subject is worthy of a category of its own, and we will explore it in subsequent posts.
