On Sunday evening in the fight at Shiloh, the Company had a position near the Federal camp behind a hill. It advanced to the top of the hill and held its position for some time within sixty yards of the enemy’s lines; but the fire was so heavy from the enemy that the Regiment fell back to the hollow. It was then ordered to advance and charge the enemy.
Upon receiving this order, Captain John Weir seized the colors of the Company and ordered his men to follow him. As he marched up the hill in advance of his Company with the Stars and Bars waving over his head, James W. Johnson and Rufus T. Holmes of Captain Reed’s Company were by his side, the foremost men of their Companies, and who kept a continual firing as they advanced upon the retreating foe.
The Regiment had become so small by such heavy losses in battle and by sickness that it was consolidated with another battalion and a new Flag furnished them. Upon the old Flag, which was turned over to the War Department, was inscribed the name of the place where every battle was fought by the command. Besides the innumerable skirmishes and pickett fights, Captain Weir’s command was in 18 general battles.
