Flag Dedication

Recommended Posts

The first battle flag of the 11th Mississippi Infantry will be dedicated and placed on permanent display today at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center. This flag was presented to the 11th Mississippi (which included the "University Greys of Ole' Miss) 155 years ago today as they were about to leave for Virginia. The flag flew in battle at Manassas and was then retired from use.  The program will be held in the auditorium at 4:30 pm.

Impressive restoration... cloth has to be the most difficult material to conserve (and get the colours right.)
