SPANISH AMERICAN WAR FLAGS OF MICHIGAN INFANTRY REGIMENTS

I ncluded in the Michigan State Capitol Battle flag collection are twelve flags associated with Michigan units that participated in the Spanish American War. During the Spanish American War the flags of the military units were normally not used as the focal point or rallying point for troops in combat but were used to mark the location of the headquarters for the Regiment or the Division. As a result of this, the flags sustained very little damage and are in incredible condition and constitute a very important part of the Capitol Battle flag collection. The Michigan Department of Veterans and Military Affairs has a concise and informative description of the important role Michigan played in the Spanish American War at http://www.michigan.gov/dmva/0,4569,7-126-2360_3003_3009-17032--,00.html.d
