Fragment Of Civil War Flag Donated To Maine Museum

At the Battle of Gettysburg, the flags of the 16th Maine Infantry was torn apart by the men who served under it to keep it from being captured by Confederate forces. Isaac Monk was a Maine solder who received one of the fragments. Now, 142 years later, Monk's great-grandson, Neil Brown, is donating the flag fragment to the Maine State Museum.

Here is another story with photos. The fragment in question is from the 16th Maine's blue regimental colour.
