A Moment in Time...

The Headquarters flag of the 3d Brigade, 2d Division of General Henry Warner Slocum's XII Army Corps flew at the Battle of Gettysburg. Brigadier General George Sears Greene, commander of the 3d Brigade, rallied the troops of his New York regiments, the 60th, 78th, 102d, 137th and 149th Volunteers, with this flag flying above him. On July 2, 1863, his lone brigade repulsed the Confederate attack on the Union position at Culp's Hill, saving the Union Right, and perhaps saving the Union Army.

The Onondaga County Civil War Round Table is proud to have raised the funds necessary to preserve this historic flag. It was returned to the Onondaga County Court House and is a tribute to the brave New Yorkers who fought and died at Culp's Hill and at other bloody battlefields of the American Civil War.

The OCCWRT thanks all who helped with this project.
