North Carolina Flags

From the June 13, 2012, Greenville (NC) Daily Reflector "NC History Museum holds talks on Civil War Flags."

The North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh has 121 Civil War flags, the third largest collection in the world.  Not all of them are on display.

It costs $7,000 each to conserve each of the 112 Confederate and 9 Union flags.

They are working with other groups to conserve the flags.  Money has been raised to save 14 of the flags so far.  The 26th North Carolina reenactment group has worked with the museum to save six of the flags.

Actually, It's About Time to Return the Union Flags to Their States.  --Old Secesh
