Civil War Flag Discovered at LMA

A framed and tattered flag from the Civil War was recently unearthed at the Lowell Memorial Auditorium. The elaborate frame notes this citation:

“Under this flag at Clinton, L. A. (?) June 3rd, 1863 Solon A. Perkins was killed”

History sleuths are at work getting all the information on the soldier, the battle and the Lowell connection.

There are more photos available on-line at Tory Germann’s  Gallery.

Note: Guy Lefebve just posted this gravestone photo for us on my FB post.  Photo by Barbara Poole.

    Clinton is in East Feliciana Parish in Louisiana. I believe there was a battle there in May of 1863 something to do with Port Hudson as well.
