A couple of Articles from our Saturday Event.

Great articles in the Nevada Daily Mail today about the monument dedication and Carol Bohl (http://www.nevadadailymail.com/story/1838364.html) http://www.nevadadailymail.com/story/1838363.html —you might want to forward them to the other guys. I can send you hard copies if you want. Something to read while convalescing.

Shiloh Animated Map
For the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Shiloh, we have released our newest animated map — the Shiloh Animated Map. Check out this new presentation and learn more about this important 1862 Civil War battle in Tennessee. And after watching this presentation please consider supporting our new campaign to save 491 acres of the Shiloh battlefield.
From Our President
Dear Civil War Preservationist,
For the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Shiloh, I had the honor to accompany Board members John Nau, Mike Grainger, and Trace Adkins to the Shiloh Battlefield. During the press conference we were able to sign the deed that will transfer 167 acres of battlefield land held by the Civil War Trust to the Shiloh National Military Park. I can think of no better way to honor the great sacrifices of the soldiers who fought and died at Shiloh than by saving the very ground where they met in combat.
Before returning to our offices in Washington DC., I also had the chance to stop by the 491 acre tract that we are now working to save at Shiloh. What a magnificent and historic piece of ground. This is a must have piece of land, my friends. And when we save this ground, with your help, the Civil War Trust will have saved more than 1,000 acres of battlefield land at Shiloh. How about that!
- Jim Lighthizer, Civil War Trust President

Technorati Tags: Beauregard's Rifles, Battle Flag, myteryHelp solve the mystery of this flag
The flag shown below is part of the collection of artifacts from the War Between The States at the Missouri State Museum. The flag obviously represents Beauregard's Rifles, but that is all the state museum staff knows about the flag. In their research has the know that most regiments known to be called "Beauregard's Rifles" orginated in Virginia.
Does anyone know of a C.S.A. Unit represented under this flag? Even better question; how did it get to Missouri?
If you have ideas or answers, send them here.
