ACU 177


Artillery after 1863 (see main description for battle honours)

Number In Pack:


Although governed by u.S. Army regulations these flags were to follow the recognized pattern for infantry units, in the case of a second issue the national flag was to remain unchanged, with regimental designation appearing in stencil upon the flag. As to the regimental flag measuring six feet in the fly and, the hoist being five and a half feet, this flag would see only slight changes within the size of the designation scrolls. The flag would still bear a central image of crossed cannon in gold upon a yellow field. Above and below the crossed cannons are two red scrolls which were lengthened but still bearing regimental designation in gold stenciled letters. The regimental flag also had a gold fringe. As these flags were issued to artillery regiments it is likely that they remained with regimental staffs and, were not carried into action with individual batteries on active campaign.
