The Iron Brigade Civil War Flag of the 2nd, 6th and 7th Wisconsin, the 19th Indiana and the 24th Michigan.

  • J Michael Joslin

    That is actually the Iron Brigade Flag. It was the first ever brigade flag of the war. It has on it the 2nd, 6th and 7th Wisconsin, the 19th Indiana and the 24th Michigan. It was presented to the entire brigade on Sept. 17, 1863 at Pony Mountain near Culpeper, Va. Please, correct the discrepancy and honor the memories of the other regiments that were a part of the Iron Brigade. It is NOT the 2nd and 6th Wisconsin battle flag only. Thank you.
