Rare Civil War artifact returns to Hatteras for permanent exhibit at Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum

HATTERAS, NC August 21, 2014 – Through the generosity of the Keith Family Foundation, the Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum has acquired the silk ensign from the USS Monticello.  It is one of only three silk naval flags from this period known to exist and is the only one with the name of the ship, “Monticello”, and that of her commander, “Lieut. Daniel L. Braine” embroidered along the hoist. USS Monticello, a 655-ton wooden, screw-steamer, was built at Mystic, Connecticut, in 1859 for commercial use.
