Flowers left for David Gregg
General Gregg, you definitely established yourself as a capable division commander of cavalry during the Civil War. I find it a pity that you suddenly resigned your commission just two months before Lee's Army of Northern Virginia surrendered to Grant at Appomattox. According to one source, you applied to be readmitted to the Regular Army as Colonel of the 8th Cavalry, only to be turned down. If you had not resigned in 1865, you might very well had received a Colonelcy, or at the very least a Lieutenant Colonelcy in the postwar Army. Nevertheless, you are to be commended for your years of service in the Army, following your graduation from West Point in 1855, including your wartime service. Take care, General Gregg.
