The Stonewall brigade flag.

Over the famous Stonewall brigade floated the flag that went with Stonewall Jackson from Manassas to Chancellorsville. Private D. P. Carver, a grizzled, scarred veteran of the Tenth Virginia .cavalry, who bore it, marched with a conscious air which seemed to say, ‘We-uns are the boys who did the fighting.’

Wise's brigade carried two flags—the headquarters flag and the flag of the Fifty-ninth Virginia. The latter was the flag that was twice captured and recaptured at Williamsburg, and cost the regiment so many men at that fight.
