Lightning Reveals 1897 Flag

AmericanFlagA fire at a Milwaukee school built in 1894 recently revealed an unusual artifact—a 45-starred American flag from 1897. Lightning struck the steeple of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. K-8 School on April 25. During the cleanup, the flag was discovered in an unused attic area.

The flag shows signs of wear and tear, and it may have sat in the attic for 112 years. Officials plan to restore and display the flag.
