This flag belongs to the Eleventh Virginia Regiment, as carried by a post-Revolutionary company. The colors are listed as "Buff field, silver scrolls and vines, green wreath.""Morgan's Rifle Corps began in July 1775, when 75 men marched to join the army at Cambridge. These men, with their new spiral-grooved rifles, were a terror to the British. In Nov. 1776, Morgan became colonel of the 11th Virginia Regiment, and his old corps was made part of the new unit."
