Historical Flag Fetches Big Bucks at Auction 

A flag that’s believed to be the first American flag captured during the Civil War, was put up for auction by the James D. Julia Company on Monday.

It’s said that the flag was hauled down by southerners, three months before the rebels fired on Fort Sumter.

History buffs from across America showed up to view the flag.

When the bidding was over, the flag was purchased for just under $34,000.

The new owner is reportedly an avid flag collector.
