Military Museum artifacts displayed at NY Capitol

Civil War flags and other artifacts from New York's military past are on display in a newly opened exhibit at the state Capitol.

The exhibit, "A Call Not Unheeded: The Empire State in Times of Conflict," features artifacts and information from the American Revolution to the present-day war on terror.

The curators at the New York State Military Museum in Saratoga Springs helped organize the exhibit, which is located on the first floor of the Capitol, longtime home to display cases holding hundreds of Civil War battle flags. Additional Civil War banners that have been preserved at the museum are included in the exhibit.

The New York military history exhibit is among the newly opened display of state artifacts arrayed inside the Capitol and the neighboring Empire State Plaza.
