Hoisting the Garrison Flag
I have found little regarding the hoisting and lowering of Garrison Flags in period texts. Ashworth 1812 says the colors were hoisted at the Troop, but I have nothing in CW manuals.
Does anyone have answers to the following questions?
1) When was the Garrison flag raised?
2) Was the Call" To the Color" played on bugle or Fife/Drum during the raising.
3) Was any other music played?
4) Same Questions for lowering the flag
