Kitchell," the commander of the 98th Illinois. The reverse hoist is also marked "E. Kitchell" and "EK." Accompanied by a large file of Kitchell newspapers and documents, including the original label for the history of the flag written by Kitchell documenting that this was made from captured Confederate flags at Macon, Georgia at the end of the Civil War on April 20,1865 by the 98th Illinois Regiment.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
