The New York State Battle Flag Collection
includes 2 printed wool camp colors carried by the 1st Regiment NY Volunteer
Infantry. Each camp color is in the U.S. national pattern as prescribed
in General Order No. 4, Headquarters of the U.S. Army, dated 18 January
1862. The camp colors include 34 white stars in 5 horizontal rows of 7-7-6-7-7.
The hoist edge was folded over to create a sleeve for attachment to the
staff. Both flags have losses, most notably along the fly edges.
