14th Battalion Sharpshooters was organized during the late summer of 1862 with three companies. It was formed with men from the 11th Louisiana Infantry Regiment. The unit saw action at Perryville, then was assigned to D.W. Adams' and Gibson's Brigade. It fought with the Army of Tennessee from Murfreesboro to Nashville, then shared in the defense of Mobile. The battalion reported 15 casualties at Murfreesboro, lost seven percent of the 99 engaged at Chickamauga, and totalled 61 men and 34 arms in December, 1863. About 25 surrendered on May 4, 1865. Major John E. Austin was in command.

Artwork is based on the original drawings of the flag upon the colors being returned to the state. These drawings were collected in the work "The flags of the Confederate armies. Returned to the Men Who Bore Them by the United States Government."

Each purchase comes with three stickers. Please note that the sticker will have a white outline and background.
