This Grand Army of the Republic Post 6 guidon has just been reunited with one of its former commanders, Lyman Aylesworth, at the Varnum Memorial Armory Museum. This American Civil War flag was acquired thanks to generous donations from our Facebook friends. Thank you! This guidon will be professionally conserved and mounted for display. Reno Post was located at the Kentish Guards Armory in East Greenwich, RI.
Interestingly, when we acquired this artifact via auction, we assumed that there was one flag in the plastic sleeve. It turns out that there were in fact two of these silk flags within the sleeve. As two-fer-one deals go, this worked out well for us!
