Another Battle Flag Saved

From the Dec. 16, 2013, Beach Carolina Magazine "Sons of Confederate Veterans Funds Conservation of Another Battle Flag at Museum of History." //// On November 21, SCV Camp 379 in Marion, NC, gave a 8,200 check to the NC Museum of History in Raleigh to preserve the battle flag of the 35th Regiment NC Troops after a two-year fund-raising effort. //// The flag is in the museum's Confederate flag collection, one of the largest in the United States and is a standard wool bunting banner, missing the regimental numbers, possibly cut away as souvenirs. //// Always Great to Save Something. --Old Secesh
