This is the first painting I have seen that actually sparked an emotion. (Other than the usual what the hell is that you get from all that crazy stuff that is just lines and dots and splatters)
The picture doesn't do it justice. There was no mention of who painted it. If anyone knows, let me know.
The picture is terrible because of reflections on the glass, but this flag was captured in battle. The guy that captured it then wrote his name and unit on it.
It's hard to tell, but he's a New Yorker. (Of course it was a New Yorker that had to commit what amounts to the ultimate sign of military disrespect. ) Maybe this is why southerners appear to hate New Yorkers more than all other forms of Yankees.
Made right in Richmond at the Tredegar ironworks
We also visited the ironworks but photography was not allowed there. It was interesting standing right on the spot where at least half of the confederate heavy weaponry was made.

Sport, 22,600 miles, completely loaded with every option plus extras
added. It was previously owned by Nascar driver Rusty Wallaces crew
chief here in Mooresville, NC. He traded it in to get the one with the
bigger engine. Pricewise it was much less than my Jeep and comparable
in price to a 2005 used Toyota Tacoma we looked at. Beck will have fun
