(SENATE BILL No. 420. APPROVED MAY 28, 1915.) An Act to provide for the return of a flag of the Eighteenth Confeder

ate Regiment of Tennessee, together with the field and staff of said regiment, and appropriating two hundred ($200) dollars to defray the expense thereof.

WHEREAS, a petition signed by citizens and representatives of the city of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and vicinity, was on the 31st day of March, 1915, presented to the State Senate of Illinois as follows:

We, the undersigned petitioners, would respectfully state to your Honorable Body, that we are representative citizens of the city of Murfreesboro, Tenn., and vicinity and in part, surviving members of the Eighteenth Tennessee Regiment Confederates, which regiment was organized and enlisted for the confederate army at said city of Murfreesboro in the year 1861.

That at the time of the organization of said regiment, a flag was presented to it by the ladies and citizens of Murfreesboro, the presentation address being delivered by a young lady of Murfreesboro, who afterwards became one of the most distinguished women of the South.

That thereafter, at the battle of Fort Donaldson, said flag was captured by Illinois troops and the same is now in the possession of the State of Illinois in the Hall of Relics at Springfield.

Your petitioners are informed that at one time the Legislature of Illinois, by resolution or otherwise, ordered the release and return of said flag, to its original holders, but that the purpose of said resolution was not carried out.

Your petitioners, their neighbors and comrades, earnestly desire the return of said flag, and represent that the same would be of great historical value to them and their descendants, and also to the State of Tennessee.

Therefore, realizing that the prejudices and animosities resulting in the late Civil War have become things of the past, and trusting in the magnanimity and liberality of your Honorable Body, also that of the people of the great State of Illinois, we ask that said flag be released and returned to be placed with our State Historical Society, or in the archives of the State of Tennessee.

We would further represent that we think Mr. L. M. Armstrong, of Peoria, Ill., formerly a citizen of Tennessee, who was closely related to donors of said flag and to prominent members of said regiment, would be a suitable person to receive and convey said flag, and we would most respectively [respectfully] ask that in the event of your Honorable Body ordering the release and return of said flag, Mr. Armstrong be deputized to receive the same and to bear it to us, or to the State of
