I am not aware that the AotT had any special corps/division flags until 1864.

During the Vicksburg Campaign the Army of the Tennessee didn't carry any distinctive HQ flags at any level.

Be careful with the McKeever book. There is a lot of incorrect information in it. Verify with other sources.

There were no such thing in any CS Army. Flags above the regimental level was only used by the Union. That is I know Brigade and Corps flags were in the AOP. Anyhow they would never be on the battlefield. It's one of the issues with brigade level ACW. It amalgamates all the regimental flags into one generic brigade flag.

Actually, the Confederate Army of Tennessee developed a basic system for brigade, division, and corps in 1864 as well. I'd never heard about it until recently. The research on this page isn't footnoted, but they credit all the big flag research names.
