Your Help is Needed!
 
The 22nd North Carolina Infantry Regiment in partnership with the North Carolina Museum of History is looking for partners to help finance the restoration and preservation of  priceless, irreplacable, original North Carolina Battle Flags.  
 
       The preservation of artifacts from our history is in every American's interest. Living Historians, reenactors, students, educators and history buffs find a personal satisfaction in learning and even portraying the history of our unique American Experience. However, history is not only academic or merely a pastime. Our history is our Heritage.  Our history helps us understand who we are as Americans.  Looking back not only shows us where we have been but what it took to get where we are today and perhaps where we are going tomorrow. It is this shared experience as a people that ultimately holds us together as a nation.
 
To this end, the members of the 22nd North Carolina regiment seek to tell the story of the Southern Soldier and help preserve these banners that to this soldier and his countrymen were most dear. 
 
Indeed, to the Civil War Soldier the regimental Battle Flag was sacred.  The banner represented home and Country, their ideal of liberty and the hope of victory and independence.  Taking the post of Color Bearer in battle made that soldier a prime target for hostile fire, yet it was counted an honor and privelege to bravely hold aloft their flag, rally the troops and carry it forward in defiance of the enemy .

Stories abound of a color bearer struck down in the horror of battle but refusing to let their standard fall. The wounded warrior somehow finding the strength to hold aloft the staff until a brother soldier could take up the colors and move them still onward. 
 
It is estimated that under these flags, Confederate forces suffered about 300,000 to perhaps half a million dead and wounded. All Americans share an interest in preserving these irreplacable battle flags.  They are truly "silent witnesses" to American history and sacrifice.
 
Will you help the 22nd North Carolina preserve these flags? 100% of your tax deductible gift will be used to restore, preserve and display these banners.  Your gift,however large or small, will ensure that the whole story of their proud history can be told for generations to come.
