Regimental Quartermaster

When the 3rd New Hampshire struck off for war it carried an extra flag which it had received in New York City. That one was shot to tatters in service along the coast of South Carolina. The regiment received another from the wife of General Egbert Viele, its brigade commander, on Columbus Day 1861: Mrs. Viele’s name is inscribed upon the staff. That one was also returned to Concord in ribbons, while a third was badly battered in the fighting before Richmond. A fourth flag came home with the regiment, and it was on this one that the battles of the command were painted in gold, according to the custom of the day.
