In Civil War Memory Kevin Levin’s drawn attention to a rather large Confederate Battle Flag that flies in Florida along I-75; another flies along I-65 in Alabama. Now one flies in Texas along I-35 near Waco, although not without some controversy. Soon these flags, now part of an initiative called “Flags Across the South,” will be along every interstate (I find the placement of these flags by a network created by the federal government worth a chuckle).
Here’s a call to understand what the Confederate Battle Flag really represents.
Look at it this way: there’s only one of these.
Oh, and for the weekly article on black Confederates, featuring the usual cast, turn here.
Wow, The ATL Magazine and a history teacher at Locust Grove High School. Locust Grove High School is just around the corner from me. I had no idea Kelly Barrow, a pseudo black confederate enthusiast was in my neighborhood. See I always learn something new from reading this blog,:-)
I might can add to this, In Ohio on I71 between Cincinnati and Columbus there is a large barn I have seen for many years that has a Large Confederate flag painted on its roof. I remember it back as far as the 1970’s. I have no idea who painted it or why. I always though it strange.
Thanks for the good laugh, Brooks. In Greenville, South Carolina, where I live, the Confederate Museum opens its doors daily (except Sunday) downtown. I’ve never set foot in it, and I’ve lived here since 1978. It’s run by neo-Confederates.
