Flags listed here are courtesy of the
Wisconsin Veterans Museum
The permission to display them has been provided to us by the Wisconsin Veterans Museum. Mike Martin who is authoring a book based on the fourth Wisconsin regiment and our online historian was kind enough to share his image of the Baton Rouge flag.
The infantry National Standard with the "Baton Rouge"
honors is most impressive and will be used as the dust jacket for the regimental history. Even though the regiment was authorized to add "Bisland" and "Port Hudson" battle honors to their flag (this is mentioned in the ORs), it was never done. (Mike Martin)
