77th Regiment, NY Volunteer InfantryFlank Marker14 1/2" hoist x 26" flyEarly Civil War

77th Infantry flag

This crimson colored, silk flank marker, used to mark the right of the line, features bullion fringe and an embroidered inscription. The bullion fringe was too heavy for the fragile silk, causing it to split along the top and fly edges. Approximately 25% from the bottom is missing. The 77th Regiment, or “Bemis Heights Regiment,” was organized in Saratoga County. Citizens of Saratoga County, resident in New York City, presented this flag to the regiment in November 1861.(2000.0165)

See the 77th Infantry Regiment History Page for more information about the unit.
