United States flag of the Park City Greys

  • ca. April 26, 1861-ca. 1865
  • On May 13, 1908, Mr. Frank H. Lyman wrote the Kenosha High School offering to present to the school at this year's Memorial Day program the old flag of the Park City Greys. With appropriate patriotic exercises, this tattered silken ensign, precious memento of Kenosha's patriotism, was dedicated to the memory of the Kenosha school boys who fought in the war for the preservation of the Union. This silk flag had been created by Kenosha women and presented to the Park City Greys on April 26, 1861. The next day, the company went to Milwaukee to join the First Volunteer Infantry, Wisconsin's response to Abraham Lincoln's call for 75,000 men for three months.
