3rd Regiment, NY Volunteer Infantry Guidons, Civil War

The New York State Battle Flag Collection includes two guidons attributed to the 3rd Regiment NY Volunteer Infantry. Both guidons have significant losses. Originally swallow-tailed and in the U.S. national pattern as prescribed in General Orders dated January 18, 1862, these guidons most likely included gold painted stars in a circular pattern in the canton. Overexposed to light, the blue fabric faded to a light blue-yellow hue as seen along the upper sleeves.

See the 3rd Infantry Regiment History Page for more information about the unit.
