111th Regiment
NY Volunteer Infantry
Guidon
28.75” hoist x 35.25” fly
Civil War

111th Guidon Flag

This silk swallowtail guidon, used as a marker to assist in battlefield maneuvers, conforms to the “stars and stripes” pattern described in General Order No. 4, Headquarters of the U.S. Army, dated January 18, 1862. Deposited into the collection in July 1865, this fragile flag’s blue canton has faded significantly. Note the cloth identification label, possibly added in July 1865, at the bottom hoist. (02.132)
