The NYS Battle Flag Collection includes two guidons attributed
to the 11th Independent Battery, New York Volunteers. Each silk, swallowtail
guidon conforms to the “stars and stripes” pattern prescribed in
General Order No. 4, dated January 18, 1862. One guidon includes 34 gold painted
stars and applique crossed cannons with regimental identification in its canton
as well as battle honors along the stripes. The other guidon is missing its
canton almost entirely and does not include any battle honors.
