Civil War Buffs on Confederate Flag Debate: It's Complicated

From the June 28, 2015, Yahoo! News by Karl Plume, Reuters.

Bensenville, Illinois.  According to Mark Edmundson, the Confederate flag in contemporary America's place: "Long story short, it's complicated.  The Confederate battle flag is a necessary part of history and it's...important to clarify history and not fall into some politically correct retelling."

I'd say he pretty-well sums it up.

Re-enactors are quick to point out that the rectangular "rebel flag" embraced by hate groups and the Charleston idiot is the Confederate Navy jack and the flag of the Confederate Army of Tennessee.

Politically Correct.  --Old Secesh
