Nicely matted and framed for display are two fragments of a 1st National C.S. flag. These were cut from a captured flag by Captain John D. Conley, 16th Maine Regiment, who sent the remnants home during the war. He said these were from the “Stars and Bars” flag, which was the 1st National C.S. Conley served with the 16th Maine from 1862-1865. He enlisted as a Sergeant, was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant then to Captain. He was captured at Weldon Railroad August 18, 1864 and exchanged in time for him to be at Appomattox. The regiment saw action at Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, the Mine Explosion, Weldon Railroad, Five Forks, Petersburg, Sailor’s Creek and Appomattox.

The photo above remnants is of a 1st National being raised above Fort Sumter, South Carolina in 1861.
