I am reading Last in their Class.  In the chapter about Appomattox it states that Custer marched with  an honor guard carrying 31 Rebel flags.  By Appomattox he had 40.  I am wondering if these flags were unfurled or rolled up as they marched ?  Was this common to march with captured battleflags flying in your line ? 

Figured Bama or Johan or Texas Defender might have an answer.  Thanks  So much to learn and I like going to the experts here for help.

Bama that is my first thought too.  I was thinking that if they were unfurled they would cause confusion.  But we are talking about CUSTER here and ya just never know with him.  Hence the reason I am asking . 

Thanks for the reply
