Printed wool camp colors in the US national
pattern as prescribed in General Order No. 4, Headquarters of the U.S.
Army, dated 18 January 1862. These early-war camp colors include
34 white stars in five horizontal rows. When constructed, the wool
was rolled along the hoist edge and stitched to form a staff sleeve.
The staff sleeve on both camp
colors seen here is no longer stitched. The fly measurements include
the open sleeve.
