The Confederacy Under Attack-- Part 259: Confederate Flags in National Cemeteries

From the May 19, 2016, Yahoo! News.

A bit out of order, but important enough to mention right away.

**  Banning Confederate Flags in veterans cemeteries supported by Louisiana Congressmen Steve Scalise, Cedric Richmond.  (Loss)  The bill passed the U.S. House by 265-159 vote.  However, four Louisiana representatives had the backbone to vote against it.

This bill bans the flying of the Confederate Flag from flagpoles on the two days a year other flags are allowed to be flown.  However, it does not ban the placement of small Confederate flags on graves.
