Dusted off my copy of Hardee's but I can't find the answer to this question...which specific if any company was designated the Color Company? At Gettysburg Capt. William Hillyer 7th NJ was in command of the Color Company yet he doesn't say what Company it is. My great-great grandfather Aaron Hayward carried the National Colors for the 7th that day. The 5th NJ monument is at the location where Col William Sewell placed the Color Company as the other companies deployed as skirmishers in a field across the Emmittsburg road. Again no mention of which company. Anyone know the answer?
