The 1st Regiment Cavalry, NY Volunteers mustered into service for three years between July 16 and August 31, 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.
