81st Regiment, NY Volunteer Infantry Camp Colors, Civil War

81st Infantry Camp Color (2001.0086)

81st Infantry Camp Color (2001.0118)

Printed wool camp colors in the US national pattern as prescribed in General Order No. 4, Headquarters of the U.S. Army, dated 18 January 1862. These early-war camp colors include 34 white stars in five horizontal rows. When constructed, the wool was rolled along the hoist edge and stitched to form a staff sleeve. The staff sleeve on both camp colors seen here is no longer stitched. The fly measurements include the open sleeve.

See the 81st Infantry Regiment History Page for more information about the unit.
