I am reading Last in their Class.  In the chapter about Appomattox it states that Custer marched with  an honor guard carrying 31 Rebel flags.  By Appomattox he had 40.  I am wondering if these flags were unfurled or rolled up as they marched ?  Was this common to march with captured battleflags flying in your line ? 

Figured Bama or Johan or Texas Defender might have an answer.  Thanks  So much to learn and I like going to the experts here for help.
