Artifact of the Month

A Flag from the Spanish American War

This is a 40 star US flag that was used by Company M. It is five feet by eight feet and is made of cotton with gold braid trim. The stars are machine sewn. The heading is canvas wih five brass grommets.

It's a wonderful artifact that is part of the museum's collection. Unfortunately there is no record of the donor.

If you want to learn more about Company M come to the museum and look it up at the Research Rochelle research station.

It's everybody's birthday in July with a party on Sunday, July 14th from 1 to 4 pm. If you were born in 1944 and before we'll have a special treat for you!
