A "Fire-Eater", you can read a bio here. He didn't get his flag until the General needed it.

A Sheriff's Deputy kindly guided us to the cemetery.
BTW, Miles came up with the familiar Confederate "battle flag" in order to remove Christian symbols , ironically, due to the objection of a certain Jewish confederate official and secondly, to help distinguish it more easily from the Union "battle flags".
