Heritage Attack: Flag at Old North Carolina Capitol Comes Down-- Part 3

State Historic Sites Director Keith Hardison came to North Carolina in 2006, he was director at the Biloxi, Mississippi home of Jefferson Davis, Beauvoir, which is operated by the Mississippi Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV).  The SCV believe in the proud display of the Confederate battle  flag as a symbol of heritage, not hate.  Sadly, certain hate groups will wave the flag in confrontations with blacks.

Hardison said the display of the Confederate flag, along with a United States flag captured from Union troops at the Battle of Plymouth, was described in the diary of a North Carolina woman who visited the capitol in Raleigh back then.
