The three printed, wool camp colors in the U.S. National pattern seen here conform to General Order No. 4, Headquarters of the U.S. Army, dated 18 January 1862. The stars are arranged in five horizontal rows with seven stars in each of the upper two and bottom two rows while the indented middle row includes only six stars. When constructed, the wool was rolled along the hoist edge and stitched to form a staff sleeve. The staff sleeve for the lower camp color is no longer stitched. The upper two camp colors are shown with their respective sleeves in the rolled and stitched position.
