Richard Kidder Meade's Personal Effects Lead Auction-- Part 2

High interest was also shown for a Confederate Army of Northern Virginia battle flag which was possibly given to his family after his death or acquired by him during his service. The hand-loomed natural dyed wool flag went for $84,000. Pre-auction estimates had it going for between $5,000 to $10,000.

A fragment of Fort Sumter's garrison flag from the attack on April 12, 1861, went for $3,200 and Meade family archives consisting of letters, books and paintings sold for $9,000.
