What are we doing to save New York State's Battle Flags?
• Documenting the history and current condition of each
• Removing the flags from their staffs, cleaning them, and
• Creating a support made of archival-quality materials
for each flag.
• Establishing a secure space with a stable, clean environment
as interim storage for flags that have been treated.
