Bluehawk :

Thank you ever so much for putting this on the top. I guess I missed it. I had no idea the Confederate Battle Flag went back to the Scots. I am going to re-join the SCV and fight for my heritage. I am sick, tired, and disgusted with all this sanctimonious bullshit about my ancestors and what they stood for. If Black-Americans can embrace Malcom X, Louis Farrakan and all the other hate-filled, criminal black leaders who continue to spew racist crap, I sure as hell can honor mine. When something looks too Confederate (as in my other post ) and is condemned, the line has been crossed.

Forget, HELL !!

Default another flag story

I used to work for a small, British owned company in Fitchburg, MA. One of my duties was to raise the colors every morning and take them down at the end of the work day. On July 3rd one year I brought a "Betsey Ross" flag from home and raised it at work in place of the contemporary "Old Glory". The manager, an Englishman, told me to take it down as he deemed it inappropriate and insulted him, as an Englishmen, since it was the flag of the United States during the Revolution. I told him that no foreigner was going to tell me which American flag I could fly over MY country and, if he didn't like it, he could take whatever action he deemed necessary. He just muttered something unintelligible and walked away. It appears we beat the Brits again!

Larry & Dan -

There is another link back on Civil War forum titled "Bonnie Blue" which goes into even more detail about the "other" american flag... Chili, Tamaroa Bill, Zag and Jerry D brought out a lot of fascinating info there, ties in nicely.

Hey there's a book on the history of the Confederate Flag. I read it a couple of years ago--quite interesting. I'll look it up at work and get back to you.

Bill -

Last night I saw a report about a "palmetto flag" supposedly run up by So. Carolina during the unpleasantness... I know about the palmetto symbol being used as a kind of lapel pin and ladies brooch, but had never heard of an actual flag being designed with it.

Was there one?
