The flag of the Dixie Rangers was captured by a detachment
of the 4th Indiana Cavalry, near Barnesville, Louisiana, on
April 19, 1865. The OR notes that there is no official
record of that unit's designation.
However, The Dixie Rangers, were Co. C, 65th Georgia
Infantry. A search for Company C of the 65th Georgia Infantry
will give you the story of the "Rangers."
