    Description

    The Civil War Guide Flag of the 108th New York State Volunteer Infantry, as Carried by the Regiment at the Battle of Gettysburg, where the regiment was part of the Third Brigade, Second Division, 2d Corps and suffered losses of 102 men killed and wounded. Research indicates this flag was doubtless manufactured by Tiffany & Co. of New York in 1863. The flag is white silk, 17" square, with a 1¾" sleeve for mounting on the staff and a 1½" blue silk fringe. "108th N. Y. S. V." exquisitely handpainted in gilt highlighted by blue and red as is the border. Wonderful sound condition with just a few cracks in the upper right corner with no loss. Stabilized and archivally mounted in an elegant gilt frame. In addition to other engagements the 108th fought at Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Mine Run, Wilderness-Spotsylvania, Petersburg, Hatcher's Run and Farmville. Only a handful of these Tiffany guide flags have survived, this doubtless being the finest example known.
