|I think the confusion comes because of the 69th PA and 69th NY the Markes are very clear but Few people actually pay attention to what they read, but a green flag and Reb reports could also add to the confusion with Distance and Smoke. Don't Forget that Union and Confederate Generals Mixed the Stars & Bars for the Stars & Stripes at Bull Run/Manassas.
I had a person see me wearing a kepi ask me where the 69th New York was in Gettysburg I pointed toward Little Round top "That way, Their Monument has an Irish Setter on it and a Celtic Cross can't miss it, it's right next to the Road" their responce "That Marker says 69th on it." I told them "Thats the 69th Pennsylvania"
