George Brague Memorial Flag

By Alan Dodd

The flag was given to my brother Jack and me when we were little boys by our great uncle George Brague who was a Civil War Veteran. He served with General Sheridan as a gunner in the artillery and as all artillery men were, he was deaf for the rest of his life.

He owned a farm in Gaylordsville where Tory’s Cave is now located. He was a fun loving man much loved by Jack and me. He is buried in the Flynn plot in the old Gaylordsville Cemetery.

Note: Alan Dodd donated the flag to the Gaylordsville Historical Society in 1999. It first flew at the Schoolhouse on Memorial Day 1999.
