3d NHV National Colors Flag
Please look for Updates on the 3d New Hampshire
Infantry Impression changes in the following months. Things are looking up for recruitment with the change. We hope to take
the field either at the end of 2010 or the first of 2011 and honor our Northern brethen.
As of June 2010 we are now a Federal Impression reenacting & living
history group. We are now know as the 3d New Hampshire Volunteer Infantry or 3d NHV. From this point in time forward we will
be taking the field dressed in the Federal Blue uniform of the 3d NHV. Now from time to time we will protray our Confederate
counterpart, the 22nd So. Carolina Volunteers; Co. F, Hagood Guards. There is always two sides to a story and we feel
the need for this side to be told.
3d N. H. & 22nd S. C.

The St. Andrews Cross ANV Flag I purchased last year has gone through several changes. I wanted to
make the flag more authentic and remove and change the more modern features of the flag.
First. I removed the brass gromments from the Hoist and hand-stitched the holes. I used rope twine
to make tie attachments for the staff.
Second, I cut out rectangle banners from white twill and hand painted, with Lamp Black Oil Paint, the '22nd
S. C.' on them. This process took the longest cause it took the oil paint 12 days to completely dry.
Next, I hand-stitched the White Twill Banners that I hand painted onto the upper quarter panel of the flag. I
used a 'loop-stitch' to make it look like it was home-stitched. This process took about 3 hours and countless needle
sticks on my fingers, there is real blood on this flag(mine).
My next project on this flag is hand-stitch around all the modern seams using the same 'loop-stitch' to
make it look more authentic. I do not intend to remove the machine stitching due to I do not want the flag to fall apart
at the seams. This project will take time.
