Flag of Our Forefathers

A large flag decorates the Capitol Dome in this 1915 photo. The occasion: the reunion of the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union Army veterans of the Civil War. The group’s membership peaked in 1890 with 409,000 members. This photo is believed to have been taken during the 50th anniversary of the end of the Civil War.
