One of the highlights of the Confederate Heritage Rally was the raising of the First National Flag of the Confederacy. Below is a photo from the event link (right side of this blog). The following is an announcement from the Alabama Division 1st Lt Commander of the SCV.
I have some good news for you. The First National Flag that was flown this
past Saturday in Montgomery on the state Capitol grounds will be auctioned
off during the National Reunion this July in Montgomery, Alabama. The flag
will come with a certificate of authenticity signed by past CiC Chuck
McMichael and myself as AoT Commander. This will be your one and only
chance to actually own a piece of this historical February day in
All of the proceeds of this auction will go to flag preservation here in
Alabama. We will have more details soon about how to bid and when (exact
time) that we are planning on auctioning it off during the reunion.
