The N.C. Museum of History in Raleigh, North Carolina, was given back a restored confederate flag that was used in during the Civil War. According to Jackson Marshall, this flag has not been seen by the public in over 100 years. The museum has over 135 flags but only 30 have been restored. The confederate flag springs controversial issues for the history of the United States but for some people it brings back heritage. Jackson Marshall stated that almost 25 percent of soldiers from North Carolina were killed or wounded in Gettysburg.
