LETTER FROM THE CEO Dear Members and Friends, Change is a constant at ACWM. We’ve had to adapt and challenge ourselves to think differently in order to serve you all better. You are holding one of these changes in your hand. We wanted the magazine’s design to reflect our commitment to scholarship and innovation that is easier to navigate and experience. We truly hope you like it. Soon you’ll also see changes in our social media presence as we ready ourselves for the big changes coming in the spring of 2019.
CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER Christy S. Coleman
After 16 months of mud, construction vehicles, and hundreds of workers milling about, it’s hard to believe our stunning new museum building is finished. Walking its corridors, galleries, and storage areas, it’s even more impressive than envisioned in the conceptual renderings. None of this would be possible without the support of so many who have encouraged us along this journey, donated your time and financial resources, and challenged us to be better each day. Within these pages, you will see how your investment in this work has been carried out in a slightly different Annual Report format.
EDITOR John M. Coski EDITORIAL ASSISTANT Tally Botzer MAGAZINE DESIGN Penelope M. Carrington
Through all the planning, execution, and inevitable adjustments, we strive to be good stewards of your investment and trust in the American Civil War Museum. Through it all we continue to operate on several fronts offering innovative programming, tours, lectures, and so much more at all three locations. Shortly, we will conclude House 200, a commemoration of the White House of the Confederacy and its rich 200-year history.

Our Appomattox site will begin its winter schedule in December to better reflect visitation patterns and allow for more efficient operations. We’ll continue to offer a range of activities and events at the site. Partnerships forged to expand tourism in the region, offer new programs, and mount exhibitions are coming to fruition. The Collections team has been working tirelessly behind the scenes preparing to move artifacts from the Museum of the Confederacy building (which closed October 1, 2018) to the new facility at the Tredegar site. There’s much more to it than just loading artifacts in a crate! They have reviewed records, assessed conditions, measured and photographed artifacts, and updated our database. We expect the physical move to begin in early January. During that time we will not be able to accept any new donations until we are fully relocated.

War for the Future
Do you think the Civil War was a world war? Many leading Confederates certainly thought so.
efferson Davis launched his presidency and the new nation on a policy of expansion, which he hoped would be in cooperation with the United States. “The North has wanted Canada and the South wants Cuba,” Davis wrote in March 1861. Before, as sections in one Union, “the expansion of both may have been restrained by the narrow views of each.” Now, as separate entities, they will “be left freely to grow.” He also looked forward to the annexation of parts of Mexico and the rest of the West Indies. As a native of Great Britain, the world’s only mid-19th-century global superpower, I could not help being struck by the Confederacy’s global ambitions when I first encountered them as a University of Virginia doctoral student. How could the Confederacy – the weaker side in the American Civil War, tied to the allegedly anachronistic institution of slavery – believe seriously that it could dominate an evolving new world order? Presumptuous and deluded as those ambitions may seem to us, they were not entirely unrealistic; they also underscore the global importance of
African-American resistance and Union victory in the American Civil War. The American Civil War Museum’s new exhibit will reconceptualize the Civil War to consider the imperial ambitions of the Southern slaveholders’ republic – which was, after all, the 5th largest economy in the world – and the significance of its defeat. “Southern Ambitions” is the second of the Museum’s temporary exhibits funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to introduce the best new academic scholarship on the Civil War into public history conversations. The project is not limited to just the exhibit; there will be a variety of ways for the public to interact. An “RVA Global Tour” will be a kind of scavenger hunt designed to reveal to locals and visitors alike some surprising historical connections in the city—and catch the attention of people who may not have thought about visiting the Museum. We are also working with local schools and universities to develop project-based learning lesson plans for students on topics such as anti-slavery activism then and now and global supply chain management.

In the exhibit, visitors will see the War portrayed within a transnational context. It aims to describe competing visions about the future – competing visions among white southerners, northerners, and African Americans as well as competing visions within the white South. Confederate policy makers, intellectuals, journalists, merchants, and others engaged in a surprisingly sustained, profoundly thoughtful, and often strikingly progressive and “expansionist” discourse about their nation’s intentions and policies should it win its independence. Confederates expected far more from their new polity than mere preservation of slavery from Federal assaults. Rather, patriotic Confederates remained convinced virtually to the end of the Civil War that their nation would survive to implement progressive commercial, territorial, diplomatic, and racial programs envisioned and debated during the conflict. These proposals and expectations emanated from a variety of individuals, media, and settings. Moreover, the course of the War exercised a profound influence on these plans, as Confederates believed they addressed weaknesses and exploited opportunities exposed by the conflict. Davis expected his plans for territorial expansion to resume after the conflict ceased. He believed the Confederacy must grow to earn its place as one of the great powers of the future. Expansion would not be achieved by military conquest, but by commercial penetration, the spread of slavery, and what Confederates construed to be orderly constitutional processes. Domestically, expansion offered the most realistic path for poorer whites to become slaveholders. Expanding the footprint of slavery across the tropics under Confederate stewardship would also be the Confederacy’s contribution to world development and progress, especially rescuing economies in the West Indies rendered stagnant, Confederate optimists believed, by emancipation. Pressure for expansion came from several directions: the jingoistic press, constant debates in the Confederate Congress. As late as the winter of 1864-1865, Jefferson Davis heard proposals to annex New Mexico, and he requested resources from the hard-pressed War Department to support the idea. In our modern era of “Belt and Road” initiatives, you may not be surprised to learn that, in the Civil War, “internal improvements” in the Confederacy attained global significance.
For Robert M. T. Hunter, successively U.S. senator from Virginia, Confederate secretary of state, and Confederate senator, extending the James River and Kanawha Canal to the Ohio would enable the Richmond-Norfolk corridor to become “a great and commanding center of credit and commerce,” because it would link both the Atlantic and Midwest, controlling “the distribution to the world over a vast area, filled with rich and profitable consumers.” According to Hunter’s vision, the capital of the Confederacy would surpass New York, perhaps even London. The impact of rapid technological change breaking down barriers between nations is nothing new. Wartime commercial conventions debated the consequences of technology and globalization. “The rapid increase of war steamers, the present number and length of railroads, and long lines of telegraphs are giving to the affairs of the world an accelerated motion.” This statement was from the February 1862 convention of Mississippi Valley planters meeting at Memphis, Tennessee. Their conclusion: “It is time the enlightened states and nations of the earth should cease political persecutions and war for the purpose of keeping each other down.” Globalization, in other words, by bringing nations together, would lead to slavery’s acceptance around the world. For these slaveholders: “The prosperity of our thorough amiable relations adds to the welfare of others.” Meaning slavery’s success at home would benefit nations abroad.

RALLY ‘ROUND THE FLAG This is the second in a series of articles that explores the Union stories of selected artifacts. by Catherine M. Wright
he Museum is well known for having the largest assemblage of Confederate flags anywhere in the world. Few people, however, know that the collection also contains about a dozen United States flags. The stories of how they came into the Museum’s collection are almost as interesting as the flags themselves. Confederate forces captured some of them and kept them as
souvenirs or war trophies. A few remained in the hands of U.S. soldiers or their descendants who donated them to the Museum. And, in an unusual twist, some were captured by Confederates then recaptured by U.S. soldiers – who may or may not have recognized them for what they were – and turned them in to the U.S. War Department, which kept and cataloged captured Confederate flags.
The Museum has conserved some of these flags and plans on displaying them in its new flagship exhibition, “A People’s Contest: Struggles for Nation and Freedom in Civil War America,” opening in the spring of 2019. This is the second in a series of articles that explores the Union stories of selected artifacts. This installment examines a variety of U.S. military flags, representing a variety of styles and functions.
National Color Each infantry regiment of the U.S. Army received two flags: a National Color, shown on the left, and a Regimental Color. The 1st Maryland Infantry (U.S.) was issued this large (six feet long) silk flag, probably soon after it mustered into service in May 1861. Painted in gold on the center stripe is the unit designation “1ST REGT MARYLAND VOLUNTEERS.” Only 24 of the original 34 painted gold stars remain on the canton.
U.S. Coat of Arms on both sides. The red ribbon beneath the eagle typically bore a painted regimental designation, but that was never applied to this flag. This flag was issued to the 29th Missouri Infantry (U.S.), which was organized in St. Louis in 1861. The regiment became part of the XV Corps, Army of the Tennessee. On November 27, 1863, at the Battle of Ringgold Gap in Georgia, the 29th Missouri launched an ill-fated charge against Texans under the command of Col. Hiram Granbury, which resulted in the loss of this flag and about 100 prisoners. Pamplin Historical Park and the National Museum of the Civil War Soldier sponsored this flag’s conservation in 1999.
Cavalry Guidon, 1861-1862
The 1st Maryland Infantry (C.S.), commanded by Col. Bradley T. Johnson, captured this flag at the Battle of Front Royal,Virginia, on May 24, 1862. It is a souvenir of the only battle of the War in which two opposing regiments from the same state with the same numerical designation fought one another. Johnson apparently kept the flag as a war trophy and presented it to the Confederate Museum in 1902.
Cavalry Guidon, 1861-62
U.S. Cavalry units carried guidons (flag with a double-pointed fly end), which, between 1834 and 1862, featured red-over-white design like this one. This cotton guidon also bears blue satin spear and star appliqués, the symbolism of which is not clear.
U.S. Regimental Color
An example of a U.S. Regimental Color, this flag is made of blue silk and yellow fringe and features an oil-painted
The guidon might have belonged to a unit in Brig. Gen. Hugh Judson Kilpatrick’s brigade of the Army of the Potomac Cavalry Corps and was captured sometime during the War. U.S. soldiers found it in Richmond, Virginia, in 1865 and turned in to the U.S. War Department (which was standard practice for captured Confederate flags).
Cavalry Guidon, from 1862
Cavalry Guidon (1862)
U.S. Cavalry units carried guidons like this one, featuring 33 of its original 34 stars, after January 1862.They were typically made of silk, and regulations indicated that they look like the U.S. national flag with gold-painted stars. The regulations specified the guidon’s dimensions as 27 inches high by 41 inches long, but this example is missing the tip of its uppermost stripe and most of the bottom stripe and measures just 36.5 inches long. Based on the regular manner in which the missing portions of the guidon have been removed, including the star from the upper left corner, it is believed these areas were taken as souvenirs.
National Flag This wool bunting 34-star U.S. national flag is very large, measuring over 9 feet high by nearly 13 feet long. Women in Maine made this flag early in the War and presented it to Col. George F. Shepley, 12th Maine Infantry. After U.S. forces captured New Orleans, Louisiana, in April 1862, Shepley was appointed acting military mayor of the city on May 20 and raised this flag above the city.
This guidon was found in 1865 on the grounds of the White House plantation in New Kent County,Virginia, in March 1865, and might have belonged to troops under Maj. Gen. Philip Sheridan, who passed through New Kent on their way to rejoin the Army of the Potomac at Petersburg. The War Department transferred this guidon and other unidentified flags to the Museum in 1906.
U. S National Flag
Three years later, after U.S. troops captured Richmond, Shepley (now a brigadier general) was the first military governor of the Confederate capital and once again flew this flag. It might have been the first U.S. flag to fly above Richmond when it was no longer the capital of the Confederacy. It could be the flag seen flying above the Virginia Capitol Building in a photograph of the city taken shortly after its capture.
Signal Corps The U.S. Signal Corps was established in 1860 to facilitate military communications using flags, torches, or telegraph. The “wig-wag” signal system used a set of flags issued in various combinations of black and white fabrics (or red if

used at sea), all of them featuring a small square of fabric in the center of a larger square of fabric in a contrasting color.
This flag is a variant signal flag that Confederate troops apparently captured and which Detective C. H. March, Maj. John V. Allstrom of the 3rd New Jersey Cavalry U.S.A. subsequently recaptured near North Mountain, captured this flag at the Battle of Sailor’s Creek on April 6, Maryland, on August 1, 1864. The U.S. War Department 1865. The flag he captured was apparently a U.S. flag that described it as a “Black Flag” (meaning “no quarter”), but Confederate forces captured earlier in the War. subsequent research indicates its appearance is a battle honor conferred upon a specific U.S. signaler. This flag of wool bunting features a red upper half and blue lower half with appliquéd crossed sabres. It was During the Battle of Kernstown on March 23, 1862, 1st Lt. probably a swallowtail guidon shape but is missing the David A. Taylor helped operate a signal station and later pointed ends. It does not conform to any pattern known joined a U.S. advance. For serving with distinction, Taylor to have been used in the Confederate Army or in the U.S. was entitled to place upon his service flags a star with Army in the eastern theatre, with one notable exception: the name of the battle in which it was earned on the Brig. Gen. George Armstrong Custer began using a flag star’s uppermost point. of this pattern as his personal headquarters flag after the Gettysburg Campaign. Custer, however, did not report any flags captured during the War, and four of his personal flags are documented in other collections. The identity of this flag remains a mystery. Because the flag’s state of origin was unknown, the U.S. War Department donated it to the Confederate Museum in 1906.
This was also among the unidentified regimental flags that the U.S. War Department sent to the Museum in 1906. Catherine Wright is a curator in the Museum’s Collections Department and a specialist in the flag collections.

AN UPDATE FROM
THE FOUNDATION Dear Friends, The Annual Report issue of the magazine is a chance for us to reflect on the past year – and what a year it has been. We have been diligent in preparing for a future that puts the American Civil War Museum squarely in the position of being “the preeminent center for the exploration of the Civil War and its legacies,” building a spectacular new state-of-the art facility for our main exhibits and for the continued preservation of our remarkable collection. The Annual Report is also our opportunity to thank all of you whose generous support has allowed us to make this progress and fulfill our mission. To those of you whose membership and annual fund contributions have sustained a heavy schedule of programming and events in addition to the everyday operation and staffing of our museum sites, we extend our appreciation and thanks. To those of you whose contributions to our capital campaign have fueled our construction and expansion, we add the thanks of the future generations whose exposure to our innovative exhibits and theater will give them a new regard for our history. Novices will be introduced to the crucible era that still defines us today, and longtime history buffs will see the real stuff of the real people who made that history. We are pleased and humbled to thank each of you and to list you all in this report. We have seen a 10% increase in our membership since our last
issue, and we extend a special welcome and thanks to our many new members. Membership will indeed have its benefits in the coming year, as we continue to offer an extensive schedule of special events surrounding the opening of the new facility, both free and ticketed events. Members will get first dibs or reduced prices. We previously let you know about an increase in the membership dues and offered a special 3-year renewal at the old rates. Your response has been impressive. But we have been surprised that many whose annual support ranges from $100 to $500 have also renewed their commitment to our efforts by renewing their membership at those levels for 3 years, something that you may want to consider. Our capital campaign is in its final stretch, with our goal of $48 million in sight. While most of our efforts have been directed toward major gifts, we have been impressed by the number of people who have sent in $100 or $200 beyond their normal support for the capital campaign. In your year-end charitable giving considerations, perhaps you would want to join that list as well. Let me close with a heartfelt thank you and best wishes for a New Year, made more exciting by your support of our operation and expansion. Sincerely, S. Waite Rawls III Foundation President
