The 6th Regiment Cavalry mustered into service by company from September to December 1861. When the term expired, those entitled were discharged and the regiment continued in service as “Veteran Volunteers,” as indicated by the “N.Y.S.V.V.” on these blue, silk flank markers. Both flags feature painted inscriptions and a semi-elliptical red shield in the center on both sides. “N.Y.S.V.V.” and “CAVALRY.” are in mirror image on the reverse for both.

See 6th Cavalry Regiment History Pagefor more information about the unit.
