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.

UPDATE: THE FLAG IS COMPLETE AND THERE WILL BE A FLAG DEDICATION CEREMONY IN THE NEAR FUTURE.  PLEASE LOOK FOR UPDATES ON THIS WEBSITE.
 
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.
 
** You will see a photo of the 22nd SC Battle Colors (mentioned above) on the 'Home Page' and 'Our Flags' the of this website.  More photos to come.
