98th Regiment, NY Volunteer Infantry Camp Colors, Civil War

The 98th Regiment, under Colonel William Dutton, organized at Albany in February 1862 when two incomplete units, the Lyons and Malone regiments, consolidated. The three printed wool camp colors in the US 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.
