    I have a 48 star flag that was my great-great grandfathers, it is in good shape, but I would like to clean it and display it in a case. How should I have it cleaned?

    Hello Bruce, welcome to the forum! Other members here may differ, but my thought would be that you don't want to clean it if it is in presentable shape. The stains and tatters are part of its story, and trying to fix them could conceivably even cause further damage. Did the flag come with any information about where and how it might have been used?
