Rally Round the Flag, Boys

According to the historian of the 118th New York Infantry, 6-foot-6-inch Sgt. Joseph A. Hastings, “Carried our colors all through the war and was a modest and brave man. Because he was unusually tall, we claimed that we carried our colors higher than other regiments.” His image is included in a gallery of color bearers and other citizen soldiers posed with their regimental and national banners in the Winter 2015 issue of Military Images.
