Confederate heritage, particularly the battle flag, has been under concerted attack for over two decades by some powerful groups and individuals, for the purpose of justifying its removal from view. When you're up against the results of such a long term crusade, you're not going to change things overnight. And yet, the VaFlaggers are changing hearts and minds every week on the Boulevard in Richmond.
For a long time, Confederate heritage advocates were silent in the face of the determination to erase that heritage, but we are silent no longer. Inspired first by the Georgia Flaggers, then the Virginia Flaggers, similar groups are rising across the Confederacy.
Only when they have been at the job of preserving and strengthening our heritage as long as others have been working to eradicate it will we see the true measure of their success.
For now -- Return the Flags. Restore the Honor. ONWARD!
