  11. I saw some interest in this forum on Battle Flags… New York has an extensive collection of battle flags at the State Capital in Albany. Beginning in 1863, regiments were instructed to turn in their flags at the Capitol when they returned home, or if a worn battle flag needed replacement. Because of this NY's collection is the largest publicly‐held collection of Civil War battle flags in the nation. Approximately 900 Civil War flags are part of the collection that numbers over 2,000 in its entirety. Given that NY lost over 50,000 men during the war it isn't surprising that almost eve
