Union Battle Flags:
The famous Charles Veil (LTG Joh Reynolds’ orderly who was next to him when he was killed) carved an “R” for Reynolds in the tree marking the supposed location of where MG John Fulton Reynolds was shot and killed on July 1st. Veil returned later and carved this “R” with an axe or hatchet. This witness tree survived until the summer of 1987 when felled by high winds. The smaller tree to it’s right and further away from the camera is still standing today.
Note the location of the Reynolds death monument is some distance away from the “R” tree and to the left at the edge of the forest wood line. The controversy over the “spot” has and most likely will continue on.
