MINNESOTA BATTLE FLAGS

      
Above left is a reconstruction of the state militia color of the Fifth Minnesota Infantry which fought in the Civil and Dakota Wars.  Above right is an actual photo of the state militia color of the Twelfth Minnesota Infantry which fought in the Spanish-American war; the flag is blue with the state seal.


      
Above left are Reenactors of The First Minnesota Regiment, which fought at Gettysburg, although the state color was probably not carried in battle.  Above center is the flag of the Second Minnesota Regiment, which fought in the Civil War; it is blue with the state seal.  Above right is an array of battle flags in the capitol rotunda.

Below is the eagle-pattern color which was standard-issue for Union regiments, including the 7th Minnesota (ca. 1862)
