The NYS Battle Flag Collection includes two
silk swallowtail guidons carried by the 93rd Regiment New York Volunteer
Infantry. Each guidon conforms to the “stars and stripes” pattern
prescribed in General Order No. 4, dated January 18, 1862. Both guidons
include 34 painted stars in the canton in the typical
concentric circle pattern. The guidons entered the Battle Flag Collection
on July 17, 1865.
