Help Save 60th Virginia REgimental Battle Flag

Help Save This Flag!

The 60th Virginia regimental battle flag was a symbol of honor and glory among the soldiers of the regiment.  This emblem was highly sought on the field of battle by the enemy and many color bearers perished, still firmly grasping its pole. To capture a confederate flag meant a Medal of Honor and a thirty day furlough for any Yankee brave enough to contest the southern color bearer.
