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
as seen on the camp color on the left. The staff sleeve for the camp
color on the right is no longer stitched.
