Running the Blockade: Flag Flap-- Housing Market Crash Good for NPS

Running the Blockade: New News about an Old War.

1. FLAG FLAP-- And when is there not one. It seems that there are some people who won't bw happy until all vestiges of the Confederate flag are removed.

This time it is over flag tee shirts being worn by some students in Dowagiac, Michigan. The administration has banned them. I saw a photo of a tee shirt and found nothing offensive with it. It said "If you're offended by this you need to brush up on your history" or something to that effect.

2. HOUSING MARKET CRASH GOOD FOR NPS-- Jim Bievenour has two and a half acres of land across from the entrance to the Gettysburg Museum and Visitor Center and was trying to sell it. The housing crash caused him to drop his price from $400,000 to $300,000 when he sold it to a partner of the National Park Service.

Overall, the NPS has bought 112 acres since the 2008 crash.
