In this Thursday, June 5, 2014 photo textile conservator Virginia Whelan who recently preserved George Washington's flag, which flew to denote his presence at various battles during the war against Britain, speaks during an interview with the Associated Press at the Museum of the American Revolution's facility near Philadelphia. The small banner, now a faded blue with 13 white six-pointed stars, is among thousands of objects waiting for a permanent home at the soon-to-be-built Revolution museum. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke) less
