Looks like the Hardee flag of the 17th & 18th Texas Cavalry (dismounted) in Granbury's Brigade, however they wouldn't have been using that flag while still mounted. They were permanently dismounted in 1863 and the flag was issued in early 1864.
Just a quick note about the "Band of Brothers". Although the monument on the battlefield refers to the 2nd Maryland, these soldiers actually referred to themselves as the 1st Maryland, CSA. This potential confusion may explain why Pvt. M.F. Knott (who served in the 1st MD, CSA) is buried among the Union dead in the Maryland section of the Gettysburg National Cemetery.View attachment 300818

This is a depiction of each regiment of the Texas Brigade in the Gettysburg Campaign. From left to right: 1st Texas Infantry, 5th Texas Infantry, 4th Texas Infantry, and 3rd Arkansas Infantry band member. The soldier of the 1st Texas, due to the summer heat, has removed his frock coat. He holds an M1842 Springfield smoothbore musket, which were issued to the regiment earlier in the war, some being carried up until 1864. The 5th Texas soldier is armed with a two-band Enfield and a saber bayonet, and the 4th Texas a P53 Enfield. The latter three appear to be wearing Richmond Depot uniforms, the 5th Texas soldier in blue-gray cloth imported from England.

Yes it doesThis print reminds me of a portion of DT's print "The Grey Wall" (post 268).
Hi Eric,Somehow, I missed this thread.
This particular print has a great deal of meaning to me for a variety of reasons. First, and foremost, it was my idea. Don used my research on Buford and Dave Shultz's research on Calef's battery to do this painting. It's because of my work that Buford is correctly shown on a gray horse, and I was the one who suggested to him that he include Myles Keogh. Another reason is that I am the author of the essay on the Certificate of Authenticity. Third is because of the incredible detail--down to the pile of horse poop in the road. Finally, Don personally signed my print to me, and my print is one of the 80 printer's proofs (mine is number 37). See the below.
This hangs on the wall here at my office.

Yes it does
We have talked a few times at the Louisville Round Table meetings. I do remember your excellent talk on General Buford. I bought the book and when I got home discovered I already had it lol. I talk with Don fairly often sometimes trying to get him to do another cavalry piece for me. My avatar was a commission piece he did for me of the 2nd KY. I think his rendering of equine subjects is some of the best I've seen. Even going back 40 years. Any chance you will make Louisville again this fall?
Well let's hope it can get worked out. As I've told you before, One Continuous Fight is probably my favorite ACW book I've read to dateSure, I remember you, Noel. Thanks for identifying yourself.
The fall is still a mystery. You probably know that I was scheduled for this spring, but it got scrubbed thanks to COVID-19. The jury's still out for the fall. As of right now, I haven't yet been rescheduled, but that's not at all unusual--none of my canceled appearances have been rescheduled to date.
