"In October 1860, the 69th Regiment, New York State Militia, an Irish unit headquartered in New York City and led by Colonel Michael Corcoran, refused to march in a parade for the visiting Prince of Wales, the Queen’s son, to protest the British monarchy’s failed policies in Ireland. On March 16, 1861, the regiment received a special flag, known as the “Prince of Wales” color, from the local Irish-American community to honor and celebrate this controversial public display of defiance."
