28th Virginia Infantry Flag


Someone dropped in on me this week to show me this flag. The owner claims it is an original reunion flag of the 28th Virginia Infantry. I'm no expert, but it looked period to my untrained eye.

The current owner is asking $2400 for the flag.

What do you think?

I would encourage him to bring it to the "Battle of Cedar Creek" re-enactment. I am sure there are Virginia units there that would love to have it.

Good idea.

It's always interesting to see and touch something like that.

You really need to address deterioration for a valuable relic like this. Maybe it should be hermetically sealed in a display case? Or will you fly it every Apr/May :)

My ancestors were in the 24th, 4th, and 57th, but the 28th is very close to home.
