Double matted in cream and red and measures 11” x14”, unframed. Original brass infantry insignia at center, on top of a 3 ½” x 2 ½” fragment of a 34 star flag.

The basic fighting unit for the infantry during the Civil War was the company. Companies generally consisted of 100 men but were seldom up to strength due to casualties and illnesses. The staff of a company was comprised of a Captain, who commanded, a 1st Lieutenant, 2nd Lieutenant, two Sergeants and several Corporals. Infantry companies were joined together with other companies to form battalions or regiments. Generally, there were eight companies to a battalion and ten companies to a regiment (the Union sometimes used twelve) and were designated with letters from the alphabet such as “A”, “B”, “C”, “D”, etc. (the letter “J” was not used because it looked too much like the letter “I”). The regiment was the primary fighting force for both the Union and the Confederacy during the Civil War.

The flag remnant came from a 34 star Union flag that was used during the Civil War. The brass infantry horn insignia was worn by Union infantrymen on their kepis. It is an authentic Civil War infantry horn that originated from an old hoard discovered after the war in Philadelphia. The reproduction image at top shows US and Confederate infantrymen at the Battle of Gettysburg.

Accompanied by COA.    [ld]
