A Piece of Civil War History!
Civil War flag fragments display. Nicely set in an 8 x 6 1/4, lucite frame, are original red, white and blue flag fragments, which measure about, 4 x 3 1/2 inches, with descriptive text, and a copy photograph of a Civil War soldier posing next to an American flag. The description reads in part: A Piece of Civil War History. The above red, white and blue flag fragments were once part of a large 34 star United States flag that flew during the Civil War. The 34 star patterns were flown from July 4, 1861, until July 3, 1863, when West Virginia was admitted as a state to the Union. While the flag was in tatters, it measured approximately 10 feet x 16 feet. The copy photo above shows a similar sized flag being used as a background prop. Excellent Civil War relic with large authentic flag fragments.
