The battle flag of the Randolph Hornets Company M, 22nd North Carolina Militia has come home again to Randolph County, from whence it departed over one hundred years ago. The flag was presented to the Randolph Historical Society by Dr. and Mrs. Marion B. Roberts, of Hillsborough, and was placed on permanent display in Asheboro. It is known that the flag left Randolph County when the company was mustered into service in 1861, and that it traveled with the Hornets, who fought in every major battle of the Civil War except First Bull run, throughout the war until the surrender at Appomattox, Virginia. Its location thereafter remained a mystery for over one hundred years until it reappeared in the hands of a Civil War collector in Connecticut in the 1960s.
