HISTORIC FLAGS

Lynn Bell, exhibits curator at the Center for American History at the University of Texas, makes an attempt to reposition a restored and framed Matamoros Battalion Flag for display on Tuesday, June 29, 1999, in Austin, Texas. The Mexican tricolor was used by one of the units that stormed the Alamo on March 6, 1836. The flag was later captured by Texas forces at the battle of San Jacinto. (AP Photo/Harry Cabluck)
