Cape Fear Museum Sends Flags to Minnesota

From the July 23, 2010, WWAY News, Wilmington, MC.

The Cape Fear Museum has sent another Confederate flag away for preservation in Minnesota after carefully being wrapped and packed. Another one had already been sent.

One of then was a Confederate National flag that was made by local Wilmington women and flew over Fort Fisher until it was captured in 1865 and sent North.

Both were extremely fragile.

A Confederate commander's uniform was also sent there.

It is expected that all three will be back and on display by November 2012.
