103rd New York Volunteers Regimental Color

The 103rd Regiment NY Volunteer Infantry mustered into service for three years between November 1861 and March 1862. When their three year term expired, those entitled were discharged and the regiment continued in service as “Veteran Volunteers,” as indicated by the “N.Y.S.V.V.” along the top of this blue silk regimental color. It is believed that the regiment received this flag from the City of New York in June 1865 while encamped near Petersburg, Virginia. The flag's obverse features the Arms of the State of New York with a presentation inscription on the lower ribbon. The reverse includes the Arms of the City of New York with the same presentation inscription. The inscriptions and arms are painted. (2007.0172)
