tell me about the organization of color bearers
I think each regiment had a group of color bearers, 8 or more ? Assume they were assigned sequentially, in the order of who served 2nd, 3rd, etc And wasn't there a
Color sargent in charge of that detail ? Was he a 3 striper ? was there any uniform or
chevron distinction of his position ? I had read of a "color corporal". Would he have been
2nd in command of that detail, or simply happened to be that rank ? I am aware that
Northern & Southern armies sometimes differred in thier procedures, as in the organization of Pioneers. Open to information and comments.
