THE REVERE GUIDON

A Guidon is a small flag used to guide and rally troops.

This flag was removed by U.S. Navy Lt. Joseph Warren Revere, Paul Revere's grandson, from the barracks at Sonoma as a souvenir. It is believed to be one of the guidons of the California Battalion. It was returned to California at the suggestion of General William T. Sherman, only to be destroyed with the Todd Flag in the San Francisco Earthquake and Fire of 1906.
