From the appendix of F.T. Gilbert's "Historic Sketches": "The flag was made by young ladies attending the Forest Grove Academy (now Pacific University) in 1855, and was presented by Mrs. Tabitha Brown, one of the founders of that institution, to Company D, 1st Regt., Or. Mounted Volls., as that command was leaving Williamette to participate in a campaign against the hostile Indians. Mr. William Charles Painter was chosen by his comrades as its bearer, and still retains the colors, after having borne them through the Indian war of 1855-6 and that of 1878."
