    That is some impressive Regimental Flag of your ancestors. Which regiment did this flag belong to?

    Private Elias Trautman, Private Emanuel Trautman, and Corporal Daniel Trautman, 50th Pennsylvania Volunteers. I'm having a rough time gathering info on them, but the info I do have is interesting. I was going to write about it in the genealogy section.

    My great great Grandfathers regiment was at Gettysburg also. Private William E. Jenkins, 44th Georgia Volunteer Infantry Co. D. He is buried behind his old church located in Henry County about 30 minutes drive from our house. His headstone reads: A good man, A Christian, and a Confederate Soldier.

    I take it that all 3 were brothers?

    Yes, all three were brothers. They are my 3x great uncles. Another one of their brothers, joined a different regiment. I can't find a trace of him anywhere though. Family says that he was a musician, who enlisted twice, but like I said, no record. My 3x great grandfather served in the 172nd PA for a few months as well. That's just on my one side of the family. I haven't check the other side yet.


    Like I said, I will post as much as I know in the genealogy section later.

    That is great knowing the History and the role that your family took part in this terrible Conflict. We know that some would say that this was no conflict-(that this was man made), but No, this was truly a Horrible chapter in our Nations History, that Never needs to be repeated.
