Abstract:

A letter from "The sons of Virginia & of Maryland [who?] are true to the South" describes the raising of a flag of the Southern Confederacy over the Rotunda on 15 March 1861 by a group known as the Carr's Hill boys." The flag was ordered down by a sympathetic Professor Bledsoe as it was illegal to fly it over state property. The writers then describe a grand flag raising at one of the boarding houses the following Monday, complete with a little girl dressed as the Goddess of Liberty and a salute of seven rounds by the Southern Guard and the playing of "Dixie."

Randolph H. McKim describes himself as one of the seven in his memoirs "Soldier's Recollections Leaves from the diary of a Confederate."
