VERY nice!  Are you familiar with the flag of the Cherokee Mounted Rifles?  i have several friends who reenact this impression.  Wish you were "a bit" closer so you could meet them...

Yes I've seen the flag.

I'm fairly sure I'm the only person wearing this for a several hundred mile radius!

My Dear Yak
you have presented a most excellent portrayal!
Fyi, I believe the Cherokee leader  Stand Watie was fictionally portrayed by Chief Dan George as "Lone Watie"
in the film The Outlaw Josie Wales. The resemblances are too numerous for coincidence .

Stand Watie was the ONLY Native American to achieve General's rank during the War Between the States, although the Union had a Native American Colonel who was promoted to General's rank after the war ended.
