Welcome to Under Both Flags: Civil War in the Albemarle, the Museum of the Albemarle’s online exhibit narrating the stories of individuals who lived, served, and sacrificed during the Civil War. The soil on which they fought and the memories of their fight for freedom are interwoven along with the ships that plied the regional waterways and the plantations and farms where they worked.

From February 2012-December 2015, the museum presented the popular exhibit Under Both Flags: Civil War in the Albemarle, which welcomed more than 205,000 visitors. This site is an expansion of that exhibit intended to serve as a educational resource.

Explore this site to learn more about the events, people and artifacts that tell the story of the Civil War in this part of northeastern North Carolina, and visit the Museum of the Albemarle to learn further more about this period of history.
