“1862: Red, white, and Battered” Exhibit

This exhibition (New York State Capitol, August 2012 - June 2013) reveals the hardships and sacrifices New Yorkers endured in 1862, the first full year of the Civil War, by showcasing nine conserved flags from the New York State Battle Flag Collection. The flags, some battered on bloody battlefields, others produced to honor heroism or to promote service, reflect the war’s deadly consequences and express the public’s continued devotion. Not only does this exhibition identify the men and women responsible for the production of the flags, but it also presents the tangible reminders that inspired thousands of New Yorkers to risk their lives for this state and nation.

Support for this exhibition and related programs has been provided by Coby Foundation

The exhibition includes the following flags:
