NJ Civil War Flags on Display NJ State Museum Main Building, 205 West State Street, Trenton  
New Jersey contributed over 80,000 men to the Civil War and the New Jersey State Museum has over 100 flags carried by New Jersey's troops in the war in its collection. The flags on display are some of the most distinctive in the collection, and they have not been on display for several years. These flags include: 9th New Jersey Infantry National Colors 30th New Jersey Infantry National Colors 37th New Jersey Infantry Regimental Colors Clark's Battery B, most noted NJ Artillery Unit in the War 2nd New Jersey Brigade Headquarters Each flag has it's own amazing story to tell. Organized by the New Jersey State Museum and the New Jersey Civil War Heritage Association, the unveiling event will feature an educational gallery walk by flag historian Dr. David Martin, author of the award-winning New Jersey at Gettysburg Guidebook. Dr. Martin is currently preparing a detailed history of the State's Civil War flags for publication. The gallery is newly installed on the first floor of the main museum building, having been moved from its former location at 225 West State Street in 2017. It also features a rotating exhibition including Civil War related photographs, sculptures and related memorabilia, prepared by Nicholas Ciotola, Curator of Cultural History at the New Jersey State Museum, with the aid of members of the New Jersey Civil War Heritage Association. These flags will be shown until late June 2019, when a new group of flags will be put on display. For more information and details about these specific flags contact David G.
