Regimental Flag of the 2nd Kentucky Cavalry

This is the original regimental colors of the 2nd Kentucky Cavalry. However, it was later used by General Basil Duke as the flag of Morgan's Brigade. It was given to Morgan's mother, Henrietta Morgan, after Duke's surrender in Georgia in May, 1865 and was cherished by her until her death in 1891. The flag is now part of the collection of the Filson Club in Louisville, KY; and maybe also be seen in the print "Thunderbolt" by artist John Paul Strain (detail seen below).

Hoist: 30" ; Canton 19" x 19" ; 14 Stars, including a KY Star Colors: Stars are white on a blue canton, the outer bars are red, seperated by a white center bar. The flag is silk with a silk tape border, and was attached to the pole by two pairs of ties of white silk in gold cord intermixed. *******************************************************************
