Re: [Civil War] Army of West Virginia Flag

Hello Bob,

The flag illustrated in James E. Taylors Sketchbook was not drawn correctly or is another flag that is unknown to me. General Crook was captured along with his HQ flag at Cumberland along with General Kelly and two privates. The description of the flag of General Crook conforms to the flags adopted by the 3rd Division of the Army of West Virginia (Department of West Virginia) on March 23rd, 1864. The flag was recaptured at Waynesborough by the 8th NY Cavalry and its location is unknown.

Regards,
Tom Martin
