The 16th Michigan Volunteer Infantry is our Federal or Yankee impression in the hobby of Civil War reenacting/living history.  At some events throughout the year we put on the 'blue suit' and honor the soldiers from the North.


This what the 16th Michigan National Colors would have looked like during the war.  The letters "Sixteenth Michigan Vols. Infantry" would have been hand-painted on one of the Red stripes of the flag.  And any 'Battle Honors' painted on the flag in the White and Red stripes.

The 16th Michigan Volunteer Infantry suffered the following casualties:
173 Killed in Action
54 Mortally Wounded
8 Died in Prison
104 Died of Disease
211 Wounded in Action
550 Total*
* Excludes Missing in Action
