Lieutenant William H Keiningham of the First Virginia Infantry was wounded at Fox’s Gap on 14 September 1862. Known as Pete or Peter, he carried a miniature version of the CS Second National flag in his pocket until it was taken from him when he was captured at Gettysburg. It was later returned to him and is now in the Museum of the Confederacy (White House of the Confederacy) in Richmond, VA.
