Happy #FlagDay!
This hand-sewn 36-star, 13 stripe Union flag is of the 7th New York Infantry, which mustered into service about the time that Nevada, the 36th state was added to the Union. They took part in the Siege of Petersburg and fought at Deep Bottom and Hatcher's Run. They mustered out of service at Hart's Island, New York in August 1865.

This Union Veterans' Post Was Shut for 50 Years. Turns Out, It's an Amazing Repository of Civil War Stories.

Often overlooked among surviving Civil War accounts are the records of the Grand Army of the Republic. Their veteran “war sketches” offer unique glimpse of soldier experience during and after the conflict.

Cool to see Benjamin Grierson featured in the March 2022 issue of America's Civil War Magazine. He's such an intriguing figure, and his great Mississippi (Vicksburg) raid is the stuff of legend. But in this sidebar, it looks like they've got a picture of Jefferson C. Davis, who does look remarkably similar to Grierson in some images.
It's great to see Gierson featured in your March 2022 issue — such a great story, and an intriguing figure. In this sidebar, however, I think you've got a photo of Jefferson C. Davis (who does look remarkably similar to Grierson, from some angles).
Re: article on Ambrose E. Ho**er. The Lone Mountain Cemetery in Carson City, Nevada, has a Civil War section. I hope to get out there some time to photograph the monument and headstones.

HI! just a minor correction to Richard Holloway's article in the July '21 issue (Pg.39): It's Williamsport, Md. NOT Williamsburg. Thanks. Stuart McClung Hagerstown, Md.
