The young man I describe was part of a ceremonial unit and he accepted a symbolic flag, representative of the Ft Blakeley flag, on behalf of all Confederate forces. It was quite moving.

He had a rifle,but I can'y recall him with it during the flag transfer ceremony.

I believe he did a stint as a member of the honor guard protecting the flag.... one union soldier,one confederate,ar arms,at attention, one on either side of the flag, all afternoon.
