A call for “Resolutions”

Posted on November 14, 2008 by


I think Kevin makes an excellent point in today’s post over at Civil War Memory. A number of recent events involving the Confederate flag are presenting an opportunity for Confederate descendant organizations to voice strong displeasure over the use of the flag as a symbol of hate and expression of disgust over the recent presidential election. Whether or not a person likes the results of the election, as a symbol perceived by some as heritage-specific, the Confederate flag has no place in the middle of it. If there is any hope of keeping the Confederate flag in the public sphere as truly representative of the Confederate soldier, it’s time to show that “heritage, not hate” is more than words on bumper stickers.
