  1. Just curious - why is this flag called the "real" flag? I assume this is a replacement for the one captured by the 14th Connecticut at Gettysburg. My great grandfather was 2nd Lt David Tobias Robinson, 4th Virginia, Co E, the Montgomery Highlanders. He was wounded and captured at Culp's Hill om July 3, 1863, exchanged on August 25, 1863, returned to his unit and was at Appomattox for the surrender.
