An Up-close Look at the Dragoons’ Standard

I had the pleasure of meeting Christopher Morton, the Assistant Curator at the New York State Military Museum, located at 61 Lake Avenue, Saratoga Springs, New York 12866. Chris was incredibly gracious in allowing me to view the Standard for the First New York Dragoons. His extensive knowledge of this historical artifact greatly enriched the research on this website. I’ve uploaded a video of my visit for your viewing. The colors of the Standard are striking, and Christopher provides an excellent description of its condition. If you get a chance, drop Christopher a line and let him know how much we appreciate his support for the Dragoons!
