Missing for almost three decades, a civil-war battle flag stolen in the 1980s by a volunteer at the Memorial Hall Museum (Confederate Memorial Hall) of New Orleans, has been recovered, the FBI announced this week.

The FBI said the  Art Crime Team in the FBI Miami Division initially got some information and got the ball rolling.

After locating the current owner, investigators determined that the owner bought the flag in 2004, not knowing it was stolen, the FBI said. He voluntarily turned the item over to the FBI.

The FBI said the flag was turned over to The Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, Va.,  during a ceremony on Wednesday. It will ultimately be returned to the Confederate Memorial Hall in New Orleans.
