Display of Calif. Battalion Flags

Hi

Today I learned that some flags from the California State Capitol Museumís flag collection would be going on public display in the rotunda of the State Capitol building soon. Preliminary information states that two of the flags are Civil War flags that belonged to the Second Massachusetts Volunteer Cavalry, the famous California Battalion (see below for images of these two flags). The display is supposed to be open to the public on September 7th. I do not know how long the display will stay up. Be sure to keep checking the California State Capitol Museumís website for further information:
