Flag of "Fenner's Battery" (Capt. Charles E. Fenner) Louisiana Light Artillery. Issued in 1864 and carried until the unit surrendered at Meridian, Mississippi, May 1865.
Upon receiving this battle flag, the unit's preceding flag (an 11-star First National) was sent home by L. C. Levy, who later took it to at least one reunion (in Columbus, GA, in 1902). That flag was donated by his family to the Louisiana State Museum.
Jacob Platt of Augusta was the contractor who supplied these Augusta Depot battle flags in early 1864 (based upon surviving requisitions and telegrams).
