|Flags for the American Civil War
[AWI] [Medieval & Renaissance] [HYW] [Crusades] [ACW] [Napoleonics] [RCW] [Games & scenarios] [Bits]
|We have been playing the ACW for a substantial number of years by now and lately have also begun to produce flags for all our regiments. Again, the basis for these flags is from Ian Croxall's WARFLAGS and we owe a lot of thanks to this page. Some of the flags you will find here may also be available at the WARFLAGS site, but they will be slightly altered to suit our specific purposes.|
|This is the collection of flags for the union line. Hopefully, in the future the collection will get even bigger, but for now these are the flags that are available. First we have a series of organizational flags:
||In producing the flags presented on this page we have used a number of different sources. Obviously the Ospreys series books on flags and colours of the American Civil War have been used extensively, but also the many websites established by the different states have been used. Here you can volumes of information about flags and colours of the troops of the various states. The sources most used include the flag conservation projects of the following states:
- New York
- New Jersey
|Next is a collection of generic state and regimental colours.
|And finally, a series of specific regimental flags.
|Our collection of confederate flags is not as impressive as the union flags, but still you may find some of the flags that you were just looking for. Much of the information is based on the Flags of the Confederacy page.
