Colors residing in the Indiana War Memorial

Not much remains of this original National Color of the 27th Indiana. The remnants of the unit name can be seen on the 3d red stripe from the bottom. The tattered remains have been mounted on a backdrop of the national flag. This flag resides in the Indiana War Memorials Battle Flag Collection, Indianapolis, Indiana.

This is a composite flag I created using the 143d Indiana flag and others to show what the 27th Indiana's Regimental Colors would look like in their prime, if issued at the end of the their service. The flags were believed to be manufactured by the same company. Battle names and pattern would be correct. This is a 35 star color with an unusual field, as the rows and columns are reversed. This was typical of many Indiana flags

Flags of Sister Regiments

The two regiments below fought in nearly every battle together with the 27th Indiana. Later, the 13th New Jersey and the 107th New York would add to the brigade a core of regiments that would serve together for most of the war.
