Signal Corps Pictures??
The members of Signal Corps Association - Reenactors Division (www.civilwarsignals.org) would LOVE to get hold of your pictures - and any other information you have.
The size of these flags obvsiously varies - as most things back then did. It's just neet to see them.
Question - on the 4x4's was there a horizontal seem through the middle?
Also - were the inner squares sewn on each side - or was there only one (with french type seams)?? (let me know) (it appears a square was sewn onto each side from what I can see).
The "Hoist" end: Was there white bunting going down it - or was it the same material as the flag?
The Ties: Were they the same color and material as the flag itself?
There are many many variations of Signal Flags in the US army - albeit they were pretty darn close.
The Signal "KIT" consisted of seven flags.
6' square: One black flag with white square, one white flag with red square
4' square: One black flag with white square, one white flag with red square, one red flag with white square
2' square: one white flag with red square, one red flag with white square
I'd LOVE to get more information from you on this!
Your Obedient Servant,
John E. Schultz
