40th Regiment, NY Volunteer Infantry National Colors. On July 3, 1861, New York City Mayor Fernando Wood with additional representatives from the Union Defense Committee presented a stand of colors, including the silk national color seen here, to the 40th New York Volunteers. The regiment was then known as the “Mozart Regiment” after the Mozart Hall faction within the Democrat Party that propelled Wood into office. Colonel Edward Riley gratefully accepted the flags.
