Attractive, unframedmatted 11” x 14” display accompanied by COA. The flag remnant came from one of the Regimental Flags used by the 61st Pennsylvania Volunteers. Also included in this display is a copy of a photograph showing Federal troops staging before the Battle of Fair Oaks where the 61st suffered their greatest losses in soldiers and officers.

The 61ST Pennsylvania Volunteers were organized at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in August 1861 and mustered in for a three year enlistment under the command of Colonel Oliver H. Rippey. They fought in the battles of Fair Oaks, Malvern Hill, Fredericksburg, Antietam, Marye’s Heights, Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, Winchester, Cedar Creek, Gettysburg, Petersburg and Appomattox Court House. The unit mustered out June 28, 1865.

Fragment measures approx. 3 ½” x 2” at widest and longest points.

The provenance letter included traces this flag back to a G.A.R. Hall in Philadelphia where many items of the 61st were displayed at one time.     [sm]
