Conservation and Exhibition

Just a quick note to respond to the questions about conservators and the exhibition of these objects.

We established a relationship in the early '00s with the textile conservator who is treating these objects. At the time, her studio was based in Asheville. She was chosen for this project because her work is proven to us and we know she will provide the best care possible for these fragile and important artifacts.

Each flag will take about six months to conserve and the uniform will take a year. The conservation of historic objects is slow and tedious work. All three objects will be back in our possession in 2012 and will be on display in an exhibition tentatively scheduled to open that fall.
