The NYS Battle Flag Collection includes two flank markers carried by the 1st Artillery. Both flags feature painted inscriptions in gold, shadowed in red, along the top and bottom. The regiment’s numeric designation, in gold paint, appears in a red painted oval shield edged with a gold painted border in the center of each flag. The inscriptions along the top and bottom are in mirror image on the reverse while the numeric designations read left to right on the reverse. Colonel Charles Wainwright deposited the two flank markers with state authorities on September 14, 1865.
