Civil War II-- 539: More About Confederate Memorials, Flags and Statues

From August 3-4, 2017, Google Alerts for Confederate.

**  Why are there Confederate statues in the District?  (Washington, D.C.)  From Afro-American.  And guess what they want?

**  Confederate Flag will continue to fly near S.C. business despite owner's concerns.  (Orangeburg)  The Edisto River Creamery is in a bind because the SCV owns a flag that flies by the property,  In this case I say the SCV should give the guy a break and lower the flag.  Maybe sell the land to the owner.

**  Dallas Confederate memorials scream 'white supremacy'.   (Dallas News Commentary)  (Loss)  The writer has located 5 Confederate named monuments in Dallas and obviously wants them removed.  At least this was not a regular news story but one person's opinion.

Sadly, the Confederate-haters think all Confederate monuments are white supremacist.  Believe me, that is not what they mean to me and not what the people who put them up, most often by UDC, had in mind either..  This was out of respect for men who put their lives on the line to start a new country after it became apparent they could no longer be a part of the United States.
