The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 4

There was a pro-Confederate flag protest at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia.  I expect there to be  alot of pro-Confederate protests.

Fort Sumter takes down Confederate flags, probably forever according to the Superintendent of Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie.

On Thursday, the National Park Service issued a directive to remove Confederate items such as banners, belt buckles and other souvenirs.  But books, DVDs and other materials showing it in context are to remain.

Also, the NPS directed that only the U.S. and state flags could be flown at sites.

There is talk about removing stained glass windows at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. featuring Lee and Jackson.  They were installed in 1953 by the United Daughters of the Confederacy and include two battle flags.

The statue of Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard was spray-painted with "Black lives Matter" in N.C..

NASCAR is working on a complete ban of the Confederate flag at all of its events.
