DISTINGUISHING FLAGS
 


 
CAVALRY CORPS    ARMY OF THE POTOMAC    1864-65
 

General Order No. 53 (12 May 1863) specified a complete set of division and brigade flags for the corps of the Army of the Potomac. For the Army's Cavalry Corps the order specified only a swallow-tailed corps designation flag: yellow with crossed sabers in white. Divisions of the Cavalry Corps continued to carry designating flags of an earlier pattern. In August 1864, however, a complete set of designating flags of the pattern established by General Order No. 53 was authorized for the Cavalry Corps, and these flags were carried for the rest of the war.
