History Detectives | Clip | Marshall House Flag

Gale Bay finds a swatch of red fabric in an envelope labeled “relics.” She also has a letter from her great-great grandfather Ira Wilson, about a slain commander, Col. Ellsworth. Ellsworth was the first Union officer killed in the Civil War, shot at as he took down a confederate flag near the White House. Gale asks Gwen to find out if this red fabric came from the flag that cost the Col. his life.
