Seas, Lakes & Bay; The Naval War of 1812 Exhibit
The Hart Room on the second floor of Mahan Hall houses a comprehensive display of War of 1812 art and artifacts from the collections of Mr. William I. Koch and the United States Naval Academy Museum.
The United States Navy Trophy Flag Collection
Begun by an Act of Congress in 1814 and given to the care of the Naval Academy in 1849, now totals more than 600 historic American and captured foreign flags.
Congress in 1814 legislated that all flags captured from an enemy in war by the U.S. Navy would be preserved and sent to Washington. By order of the President this collection was relocated to the Naval Academy in 1849 as an educational and inspirational tool.
Twenty-five historic flags captured in the War of 1812 are shown in glass cases in Mahan Hall lobby and in the gallery of the auditorium, including the only captured Royal Standard.
