Interview: Jackie Calder on Vermont’s Civil War flag collection

Print More

The Vermont Historical Society hopes a new federal grant will help preserve a collection of Civil War flags and paintings.

The collection has deteriorated so much in recent years that many of the items had to be removed from public view.

Jackie Calder is the curator of the Vermont Historical Society. She spoke with VPR’s Mitch Wertlieb and says the flags, some of which were carried into battle during the Civil War, are physical remnants of Vermont’s past.
