37th Alabama Infantry Regiment Battle Flag
The 37th Alabama infantry regiment was organized in Auburn Alabama in the spring of 1862 from Tallapoosa, Pike, Henry, Macon, Barbour, Chambers, and Russell counties. They were sent to Mississippi where they fought at Iuka, Corinth, and Hatchie Bridge, which was the final engagement of the Iuka-Corinth campaign. They went on to fight at Chickasaw Bayou, Port Gibson, Champion’s Hill and finally Vicksburg where they were captured on July 4th 1863, the day Vicksburg fell. After being released via prisoner exchange, the 37th was attached to J.C. Moore’s, A. Baker’s, Gibson’s, and Brantley’s Brigade where they were engaged at Chattanooga, Resaca, Noonday Creek, Kennesaw Mountain and the Atlanta Campaign. This flag is believed to be the 3rd flag carried by the 37th Alabama and was likely presented in April or May of 1864 while they were encamped at Dalton, GA. and was carried by the 37th until its surrender in April of 1865. Only about 75 men of the 37th were left at the time they surrendered. This 12-star pattern flag was manufactured in Mobile, AL and assigned to several units within the department of Alabama, Mississippi and East Louisiana.
