"Raising the Old Flag over Fort Sumter"

April 14, 1865, four years from the day the Confederates took the stars and stripes from the flag-staff at Fort Sumter, Union Major General Anderson raised the same flag over the ruins of the Fort, again in possession of the Union. Charleston Harbor was filled with Union vessels covered with holiday flags. Amid booming cannon, and with the bands playing the "Star Spangled Banner," Anderson ran up the glorious old flag.
