“The Flag of each regiment, though pierced and tattered, still flaunts in the face of the foe, and noble band of veterans with thined ranks, and but few officers to command, still stand by them; and they seemed dertermine to stand so long as there is a man to bear their flag aloft or an enemy in the field.” — Brigadier General Lews A. Grant, Brigade Commander
