6th Regiment NY Volunteer Infantry | General Guide Flag | Civil War

Flag dimensions: 18 3/4" hoist X 20" fly.

(2003.0289)



Presented to the 6th Regiment NY Volunteer Infantry by Thomas C. Burns on behalf of the citizens of Staten Island, New York, this white silk guide flag retains most of its original painted inscription, “6th Regt. WILSON’S ZOUAVES.” Like many other flags within the collection, the fly edge sustained damage and some loss. The flag remains on its staff since removal would cause more harm to the delicate silk.
