Flowers was a member of Company B in the 6th Arkansas Infantry.  He was probably captured during the Chickamauga, Ga./Lookout Mountain Campaign in late 1863 and ended up in Rock Island Prison in Illinois.

The envelope, which is in nice condition, along with this note from a destitute soldier makes for a great
display.
