“From the stone wall to the gate there were ten stands of colors “
Great quote from July 3rd, has anyone seen it before, I am looking for who attribute it to. Who said it?

Hello,

This is the blood stained flag of the 26th North Carolina Troops who lost 14 color bearers on July 1, 1863 at Willoughby Run west of Gettysburg going up against the Iron Brigade. Includied in this count was their boy colonel, Henry Burgwyn.
