Confederate field command

Hey guys,
Its your resident Civil War nut signing in...I wanted to relocate my top brass, so I put this together today.
I added the Southern Rights flag ( havent seen one of these on any of the blogs) to the cavalry man.
The flag was raised in Savannah Georgia when Lincoln was reelected in November 1860 and was used 
thru out the war.
