New Orleans Greys Flag/Virtual Tour of Chapultepec Castle

Postby martin vasquez on Mon May 03, 2010 2:47 am

I do not know if anyone has visited Chapultepec castle in Mexico city recently but I just visited online the Museo Nacional de Historia located inside the castle and to my surprise they now have a virtual tour of the museum where I did see the New Orleans Greys flag displayed prominently in a glass case. Below you will find a link and once you let the page load up scroll down the left side and click on La Joven Nacion V. This room is where you will find the Greys flag sitting above a Cuatla Dragoons cavalry flag. Not sure how bad the flag was, but appears to be in decent shape, interested in others opinion?
A couple of other noteworthy things I saw in the museum was a Santa Anna wooden leg with boot(I beleive there are two in the US if I am not mistaken).
The Battle of Tampico painting also seems to be on a wall in the museum, it was suppose to be lost along with the Greys flag?
Very beautiful place for a museum, I cant wait to visit! Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.

Such a trip to feel as though you are actually inside the Chapultepec museum. I've seen photos of the display case that houses the
New Orleans Greys flag, so I knew it was coming up when I spotted the open doors. It's kind of exciting, Martin. Thanks.
