Special Display of the Flag of the CSS Shenandoah, the Confederacy’s Last Flag


Richmond, VA: The last flag of an active Confederate command will be on display on the 150th anniversary of the lowering of the flag by the officers and men of the Confederate commerce raider CSS Shenandoah. The exhibition will take place on November 6, 2015, 10 AM – 3 PM, at The American Civil War Museum’s Museum of the Confederacy-Richmond for a special one-day exhibition.  The Museum of the Confederacy-Richmond is located at 1201 East Clay Street, Richmond, VA 23219.

The Shenandoah flew the Confederate second national flag as she hunted American shipping from October 19, 1864 until August 2, 1865 when the crew learned that the war had ended months before.  Shenandoah flew her flag again on November 6, 1865 when the British built ship arrived in the harbor at Liverpool, England, and was turned over to British authorities.  It was the last official lowering of a Confederate Flag.  Come see this unique piece of history during this special one-day exhibition.

Thanks for posting this Chuck. Too far away for me to get to, but I'd attend if I could! Purely if you're interested, I talked about the Shenandoah in a recent blogpost: she's a ship which remains of interest here in Victoria. If it's of interest, the link is http://newciteaux.blogspot.com/2015/11/a-cannon-on-goulburn.html
