“1861: Banners for Glory” Exhibit

This exhibition (New York State Capitol, July 2011 - June 2012) commemorates the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War by showcasing eight historic flags from the New York State Battle Flag Collection. The flags date to the war’s dramatic opening in 1861 and illustrate the patriotic devotion and courage displayed by New Yorkers as a once-united country unraveled into armed conflict. Banners for Glory honors the 100,000 soldiers from the Empire State who rallied around the flag in 1861, and identifies the diverse group of men and women responsible for these inspirational and expressive emblems.

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

The exhibition includes the following flags:
