As we’ve just celebrated the 240th anniversary of Independence Day, this episode talks about something dear to many of the Boys of 1861 - the Flag. This episode features Matt Van Acker from “Save the Flags” talking about the importance of the flags to the men who served under them. Though told through Matt’s lens of helping Michigan flags, he emphasizes how important these sacred pieces of cloth were to Civil War soldiers, whether from North or South – or East or West.

Thanks for sharing this video about the importance of flags during the Civil War. My son watched with me and came away with a new understanding of flags and the Civil War. Thank you!
