State Capitol, Montpelier, Vermont, June 1982
This photograph features a cabinet of Civil War-era flags representing the Vermont Brigade Guidon and its Sixth Infantry Division. The flags are hung in the cabinet at various heights and planes, creating a collaged sense of depth that encourages reminiscence and memory. In contrast to the ornamented white walls, the cabinet and the ornamented couch below balance the photograph with darker hues that altogether emphasize the flag at the center of the photograph. The flag represents the First Vermont Calvary Regiment Flag, stylized similarly to that of the nations. It may be of importance to the reader to note that in 2016, the entire Vermont Civil War Flag Collection was published online at DigitalVermont.org.
