Flowers left for John Pemberton
You were the highest ranking yankee in the Confederate Army, despite the fact that you were not trusted by some. After your surrender to Sam Grant (Who, I believe met you in the pre-war Army), no suitable command was available for an officer of your high rank. Consequently, you resigned your Lieutenant Generalcy to serve in the Artillery as a Lieutenant Colonel. If this is not proof of your loyalty to the Confederacy, I don't know what is. A lesser man would have just left the service altogether. Rest easy General/Colonel Pemberton.
