Bill Mock was wearing his SVR, Sons of the Veteran Reserve honor guard, "Gettysburg Blues," uniform of Gettysburg Camp # 112, (SUVCW) Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War.

FYI: The flag that we had on display was representative of the 138th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry; the first reproduction since the Civil War. The designs are hand painted on silk...just like the original. During America's Civil War, Bedford County, PA supplied individuals for Company D, E, and F for the regiment. That flag was made possible through the supportive efforts of the Bedford County Historical Society, and the financial benevolence of thirty Bedford County residents, in honor of their ancestors.
