Ole you summed up what I was going to say much better than I could .  Thanks for that. 

D.O.C. had a a monument at the County Court House

What is the D. O. C.?  I am not sure to who this is ?  Do you mean the UDC?  United Daughters of the Confederacy ? 

those footsoldiers followed the battleflag into combat so it was under that flag that they lost their lives.

From what I have read the battle flag was only used by certain troops .  Cleburne's men followed the Hardee flag, I have seen many different flags on display that the soldiers of the Confederacy fought under  and lost their lives.  The battle flag was a square .  The rectangular flag that as Ole says has been been tainted by the careless use of it by some reprehensible people,  was a Navy flag .
