General James S. Wadsworth presented this “Tiffany
Co.” marked, silk regimental to the 104th Regiment in the spring
of 1862. The flag features the embroidered arms of the State of New York.
The two small holes in the upper hoist quadrant line up with damage to
the staff, most likely caused by a bullet. In July 1963, restorers stitched
the flag between two layers of nylon netting. (02.136)
