Maine State Museum

With a focus on Civil War flags, this groundbreaking exhibit presents fragile, original flags carried by Maine soldiers. The flags’ careful exhibition in a controlled museum environment ensures their long-term preservation. Other artifacts featured include the famous pistol captured by Joshua Chamberlain during the bayonet charge on Little Round Top, medals of honor, and items showing everyday life of the Civil War soldier.

The 20th Maine flag is always on view in the exhibit. Other flags are rotated every six months and no more than three are on view at any one time.
