It is certainly possible that the flag was captured at the earlier battles, although when
I hear a vague statement like "Captured in Georgia" it suggests Sherman's
campaign to me.
Thanks for the help - I'd love to see us figure this out!
The earliest battle fought in Georgia was Sept 18-20 1862 in Chickamauga, GA
(this is according to the Library of Congress Civil War Desk Reference.2002.
pg. 241). The battle in the Kennesaw Mtns occurred June 27, 1864, and the two
major battles for Atlanta occurred July 20, 1864 and Sept 1, 1864. I do not
know if or where the 21st was assigned at these times, but Chattanooga TN sits
right on the border and there was a battle there from Nov 23-25, 1863.
I will continue looking for mor einformation.
