Battle Flag of the 7th KY Veteran Volunteer Infantry

Courtesy of The Kentucky Historical Society, here is an image of the flag of the 7th Kentucky Veteran Volunteer Infantry, the unit of which my g-g-g grandfather Nimrod McIntosh was a member, though he became ill at Young's Point Louisiana in early 1863 and transferred to the Veterans Reserve Corp in Indianapolis.

I am currently reading through his pension records and trying to transcribe as many of them as possible. He claimed he developed a cold at Louisiana and that it settled in his lower back, preventing him from resuming his work as a farmer in the post-war years.
