Last week the APG Board approved the funding to conserve the colors of the 2nd North Carolina from the War Between the States. The flag is in the possession of the Gettysburg National Military Park and needs work so that it can be put on display sometime in the future. Greg Goodell Park Curator stated in his proposal
“This project would focus on the preservation and reframing of the 3 rd Bunting Issue battle
flag of the 2 nd North Carolina Infantry in the park’s collection. Historical evidence
strongly suggests this was the flag carried by the regiment at Gettysburg.”
Cost for the preservation is $13.953.
We will have more on the flag soon and will publish when we receive it.
