United Confederate Veterans' 1921 Reunion

Brady, McCulloch County, Texas


This 8x40-inch photo, in four sections, of the Mountain Remnant* of the 5th Brigade of the United Confederate Veterans in Brady, Texas was taken August 3-4-5, 1921 by Baxley of Stephenville, Erath County, Texas.**     The flags on the left and right ... (1) the left is a Confederate Third National type.  Note the red bar on the "fly end" of the flag.  Both of these flags look much too pristine to be actual "war-time" flags.   Probably belonged to the local  UCV  groups.   ...  on the flag are the words "McCulloch Camp ---- UCV" ... (2) the right is the "First National Banner of the Confederate States (or the Stars and Bars Flag).

Each photo can be enlarged by clicking on photo then clicking again on the 2nd photo's arrows in the lower right corner.

St. Clair, Winfield Scott St. Clair (misspelled Sinclair in CSA records)  Benavides' Regt. (part of the 33d TX Cavalry), Co F ... surrendered New Orleans on May 26, 1865

*  On August 8th [2008] the SCV Mt Remnant Brigade of Junction, Kimble County TX held a commemorative reunion to honor the one held on Aug 8, 1908.  Of note is the picture of the Mt Remnant Brigade was also good and I think they have identified everyone in the picture.  This picture may echo the one held in Brady in 1921.  Pictures in the West Kerr Current (Aug 14, 2008) and the Junction Eagle (Aug 13, 2008) were fairly clear.  These guys are 13 years younger (than the 1921 photo), but many will be recognizable.  sent by Bill Nolan
