Im desperatively searching for the regimental colors belonging to the 18th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment, which fought on the Union side during the Maryland Campaign.
It's a relatively unpopular regiment which also hasn't a fancy story like the 10th Maine oder 69th NY, so it's quite hard to find any historical reference.
I've checked every reference I could find, but without result.
I hope some of you have some secret sources.
Why am I doing this? An ancestor of mine served in Company C and I'm interested in making a little report about this.
Edit: Or did they simply use the Union colors? As far as I'm concerned, the 98th NY Volunteers also used the Union flag, where the 11th or 149th had an own color.
Edit 2: If there's no picture, is it possible to find a description? Based on similar colors I could create a(n) (artistic) reconstruction
