This September will mark three years since the Va Flaggers first stepped onto the sidewalk in front of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA)... and despite efforts to stop us, we are determined to stand and fight... until the Confederate Flags are returned to the Confederate Memorial Chapel, and the honor is returned to the men who lived and died on the grounds of the Old Soldiers Home.
Why do we do what we do?
Yesterday afternoon, in temperatures that neared 100 degrees Fahrenheit, Flagger Tommy M. was one of 1/2 dozen Va Flaggers who answered the call to forward the colors on the Boulevard.Â In this photo,he displays his inspiration:
Pvt Alexander Morris (His Great Great Grandfather)
Pvt James Henry Morris (His Great Great Uncle)
Both served with the 3rd Va Reserves (Bookers Regiment), from Buckingham,Va. Home Guard, defending High Bridge in Prince Edward, Va
God Bless Alexander and James Morris, and God bless the Flaggers!
RETURN the flags!
RESTORE the honor!
