NC Museum of History in Raleigh Shows Never Exhibited Flags

From the January 25, 2014, Columbia,(Ind) Republic by AP. //// Civil War flags never before exhibited or not shown in many years are to be seen in the museum's "North Carolina and the Civil War: The Bitter End, 1864-1865." It is the final exhibit in its three-part series commemorating the 150th anniversary of the war. //// The flags have been conserved by re-enactment groups and organizations. They will be changed periodically to avoid prolonged exposure to light. /// The era portrayed begin with the spring of 1864 and continues to the surrender of the CSS Shenandoah on November 6, 1865. //// --Old Secesh
