http://kyhistory.pastperfectonline.com/webobject/CECDEB0B-4763-4FE8-B1BC-188877773520

 

 

               This site contains a photo and other information on a flag that was presented to the men of the 1st KY (which I believe to be the one presented to them while they were at Cripple Creek).  (The family member who donated the flag mistakenly says it was carried in the Peninsula Campaign and at Vicksburg--both of which, the 1st Kentucky was NOT a participant in.)
