The Colonel Ellsworth Flag-- Part 3: Legacies

The 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia had a major exhibit dedicated to Ellsworth.

Ellsworth, Michingan, Ellsworth, Wisconsin and possibly Ellsworth, Iowa are named for him.

Also, Fort Ellsworth, a timber and earthen fortification in Alexandria, Virginia, part of the Civil War defenses of Washington, D.C., also was named for him.
