Confederate Battle Flag of the 24th Virginia Infantry.  At Gettysburg the 24th was part of Kemper's Brigade and was on the extreme right position of the line. The flag was held high by Pvt. Henry Taylor as the 24th turned south to counter the flanking fire by Stannard's Brigade. This flag was one of the few to be carried back to Seminary Ridge. The 24th's flag was later captured on April 6, 1865 at the battle of Sailors Creek, only a few days before Lee's surrender at Appomattox.
