18th Regiment Louisiana Infantry
William Hall, Q. M. Sergt. Co.-, N. C. S.
...Flag design is based on a small torn
section of the regimental battle flag which is on display in
the Confederate Museum, New Orleans, Louisiana. May 19,
1865. When the 18th Regiment was disbanded the flag
was torn into ten pieces and a piece given to each of
the ten company commanders. (Placement of Battle
Inscriptions is specualtive and based on similar Confederate
battle flags of the same period.)
...At this point in time, we are still
searching for an image of Q. M. Sergt. William Hall and we
hope to add one in the forseeable future. Should any of his
decendants have a photo of William, and would gratiously
care to place a copy of his photo at this web site...this
researcher would be grateful.
