Provenance Reconstruction:

This flag is an Army of Northern Virginia, 7th wool bunting Richmond Depot flag issued to the regiment in March or early April 1865. It was surrendered by the remnant of the 14th Alabama Infantry on April 12, 1865 at Appomattox. The flag was eventually forwarded to the War Department where it was assigned Capture Number 347. The flag and its staff were returned to the State of Alabama effective March 25, 1905. The staff, which had been separated from the flag, was located and positively identified in July, 1998.
