Need help with a Civil War Sticker

I think I have the Civil War sticker added to Francis Marion Bennett, however the category created by the sticker is red.  Maybe I did something incorrectly or maybe the category doesn't exist yet.  Could someone with more experience with stickers and/or categories please look at it?  Thanks so much!

You can use the category feature (above the edit box) as a search tool for existing categories. All official CW categories have been set up, so your category was there! I typed in the box: 19th Texas and up popped two choices, including the one you were looking for. (19th Regiment,_Texas_Cavalry_(Burford's), United States Civil War.) I copied part of it, up to the comma before United States Civil War, and placed it in the sticker template. Now you have the correct category.

Dresden's was the company name, which we don't drill down to in categories, but you do have it in the bio, so that's covered. Burford's was the name of the entire regiment, named for its colonel, Nathan Macon Burford. (reference: https://tshaonline.org/handbook/online/articles/qkn19)

Hope this helps for future category searching!
Thanks so much Natalie.  I searched for Dresden's.  Obviously I should have searched for 19th Texas.  Thanks so much.  I will remember all the categories have been set up in the future.  Thanks for that great tidbit.  Also, thanks for fixing FM Bennett.
You're welcome! :-)
Silly me! I see you have it resolved! Thanks everyone for helping!

Hi Kathy, it would seem to me that the category does not exist as yet.

This is what I get when I go to open the link.

Category: Dresden's Texas Cavalry, United States Civil War

You've followed a link to a page or category that doesn't exist yet. To start it, enter something in the text box below.

If you're here by mistake, just click your browser's back button.

Thanks, Shaun.  As you can see from Natalie's post above, categories don't go down to the company's name, so that was what was creating the problem in the sticker.  I knew how to create a category (having learned on cemeteries) but was apprehensive about doing that.  As it turns out, no category needed to be created, I just didn't have him listed properly.  Thanks for looking at this so quickly.
Thanx Kathy that makes sense, I just posted what I saw. Thanx for teaching me something new, don't know much about category's.
