Battle Flag of the "Bloody Sixth" NC Conserved-- Part 1

From the April 6, 2013, Raleigh (NC) News & Observer by Renee Elder. //// The flag of the 6th North Carolina Infantry Regiment was lost to the enemy in the final month of the war. It was handed over to the North Carolina Museum of History after a $6.500 restoration. //// It had been captured at the Battle of Sailor's Creek in Virginia on April 6, 1865 by a Union soldier. Forty years later, it was returned by the federal government but remained in storage because of its torn and dirty fabric. It has been 100 years since the public last saw it. //// --Old Secesh
