The NYS Battle Flag Collection includes two
silk, swallowtail guidons carried by the 151st Regiment New York Volunteer
Infantry. Each guidon conforms to the “stars and stripes” pattern
prescribed in General Order No. 4, dated January 18, 1862. Gold
painted stars in the typical, concentric circles pattern appear in each
canton. The guidons do have losses, most notably along the top edge and
along the fly.
