"Heart's Blood:" Flag Saved By Him Needs Saving-- Part 3

Whether the flag became a Confederate trophy or if he had been able to keep it from them is not known.  The flag was returned to Illinois and put on display with others in the Capitol Building.

In the 1920s, the flags were removed to the Centennial Building where they remained on display until 2003.  Now, they are stored in a climate controlled facility at Camp Lincoln in Springfield, Illinois.

Funds between $15,000 and $20,000 are needed for restoration.
