Sold to the highest bidder! A piece of history from Louisiana

This was in my news this morning from Antiques and the Arts Online:
“A Civil War standout was an important Confederate flag for the Second Louisiana Cavalry, captured at Henderson, La., March 21, 1864, by William Ayers, second sergeant of Company H, 35th Iowa Volunteers, Fifth Infantry. The flag was recently deaccessioned from the Southern Oregon Historical Society, where it has been since the 1950s. It sold to a private buyer for $51,480.”
