The New York State Battle Flag Collection includes two general guide flags carried by the 144th Regiment NY Volunteer Infantry. Both flags, in the US National pattern, have significant losses. The regiment's numeric designation in script is embroidered as well as the state affiliation, "N.Y.S.V." Conservators decided not to remove the staff from one of the flags because removal would cause more damage to the fragile silk.
