Flowers left for Henry Hilliard
This flag was made from the wedding trousseau of Mrs. Henry W. Hilliard, formerly Mary Bedell, d. 22 Jun 1862. It was presented to Hilliard's Legion upon their organization in June 1862. Hilliard's Legion is claimed to have been the first among Gracie's Brigade to place its colors in the Union works, but the flag was shot through by 83 bullets, and the ensign, Robert Y. Hiett, was promoted to Lieutenant for his gallantry.
