The Last Confederate Flag That Flew Over Fort Sumter, South Carolina!


A fragment of the 2nd National Confederate flag that flew over Fort Sumter, Charleston Harbor, South Carolina until it was evacuated by the Rebels on February 17th, 1865, once owned by General Thomas Abram Huguenin. He was present at the capture of Fort Sumter on April 12th & 13th, 1861 and commanded the rear guard at the evacuation of Morris Island. He was in command of Fort Sumter from July of 1864 to February 17, 1865 and was the last to leave the fort. Two months after the evacuation of Fort Sumter Huguenin surrendered at Greensboro and would later be paroled at the end of the war. During the war he was wounded on four occasions never incapacitating him from performing his duties. The Second National Flag of the Confederacy, also known as the "Stainless Banner," was adopted on May 1, 1863. This flag caused confusion because its long white field often made it look like a surrender flag while lying limp. It was replaced with the Third National Confederate Flag on March 1st, 1865. The 2nd National flag was the type that was removed from the fort by General Huguenin when he evacuated the fort. An example of that style of flag is shown above. This small remnant was part of the entire remnant that is accompanied by a copy of the note attesting that the remnant was once part of the last Confederate flag that flew over Fort Sumter that was given to the previous owner by General Thomas Abram Huguenin, and a copy photo of the interior of Fort Sumter. This very handsome 11 x 14 display is double matted in Confederate gray and trimmed in red. The cloth remnant of this famous Confederate flag in the center of this display measures approximately 1/2 x 5/8. A letter of provenance and authenticity is included. Shrink wrapped and ready to frame. Rare and very desirable Fort Sumter relic.
