Re: LETTER - Christian A. Fleetwood

Lloyd,

Thanks for the information on Sergeant Major Fleetwood.

Following citation by Major-General Benjamin F. Butler, commander, Army of the James, October 11, 1864: "Christian A. Fleetwood,* sergeant-major, Fourth U.S. Colored Troops, when two color bearers had been shot down, seized the national colors and bore them nobly through the fight. He has a special medal for gallant conduct."

Fleetwood's regiment was in the Third Division, Eighteenth Army Corp, Army of the James.

*Medal of Honor
