MOLLUS Banner Restoration

Mass MOLLUS banner

September 4, 2014

The banner pictured above is the original banner of the Massachusetts MOLLUS Commandery which dates to around 1865. This banner, made of silk has suffered major deterioration over the years. Unfortunately, it had also been damaged by inappropriate attempts at preservation. Deirdre Windsor of Windsor Conservation has painstakingly undertaken the task of restoring the banner to its original glory.  Restoration is now complete and the banner will be on display at the 2014 MOLLUS National Congress.

Any state that had a regiment in the Union Army, would have had its own banner. This one was from 1865 and restoration started in 1962. You can view this banner at the Shriner’s Museum in Lexington, MA.
