Should have dug a little deeper before piping up.  The 32nd MS and 45th MS were consolidated until the summer of '64 when the 45th became the 3rd MS Battalion and was consolidated with another unit.  So McBride did have an affiliation with the 32nd.  Interesting that at Franklin he was still carrying the old flag.  Even more interesting is that the artilleryman who ends up with the flag was not even at Franklin.  He was at Nashville on Nov 30 so somehow the flag got taken there and transferred hands.
