139th Regiment, NY Volunteer Infantry Guidons, Civil War

139th Infantry Guidon (2004.0034)

139th Infantry Guidon (2004.0035)

The NYS Battle Flag Collection includes two guidons carried by the 139th Regiment New York Volunteer Infantry. Each silk, swallowtail guidon conforms to the “stars and stripes” pattern prescribed in General Order No. 4, dated January 18, 1862. One guidon includes all it’s stars, 35, while the other guidon, discolored, faded and with fabric losses, includes only 24. Both guidons include a unique element – the unit’s numeric designation is painted in gold, yellow and black to the lower half on the front side only.

See the 139th Infantry Regiment History Page for more information about the unit.
