Rich. Colorful. Bold. Words that may not initially evoke images of Civil War flags but the South Carolina Confederate Relic Room & Military Museum's upcoming exhibit shows that many of the earliest Civil War flags were hand-crafted works of art and not simply "stars and bars." Bold Banners: Early Civil War Flags of South Carolina will be exhibited at the Relic Room from May 6, 2011 through September 29, 2012. The exhibit will display some of the earliest flags representing units from across South Carolina at the onset of the war.
