DISTINGUISHING FLAGS
 


 
II CORPS    ARMY OF THE POTOMAC
 
Notes
 

On 7 February 1863 Army of the Potomac General Order No. 10 specified a designating flag for headquarters of corps:  blue, swallowtailed, with the number of the corps in red on a white botonee-style cross. Then on 12 May 1863 General Order No. 53 specified a complete set of division and brigade flags. Each corps was assigned a unique badge (a trefoil for II Corps) which appeared on these flags. The corps headquarters flags, however, were not changed until 1864, when General Order No. 115 specified that they were to bear their number on the corps badge. In the spring of 1864 II Corps counted four divisions, two having been transferred from the dissolved III Corps.
