Honor flag another relic of Chenango's Civil War past

NORWICH In honor of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the Chenango County Council of the Arts and the Historical Society will be presenting a Civil War commemorative weekend beginning Aug. 25. In preparation, The Evening Sun presents the second in a series of articles about items and locations around Chenango County that were relevant to the Union war effort and the men and women involved.

It was decided that the flag was in need of conservation and was given to conservator Gwen Spicer for a two-year plan of treatment.
