Virginia Heritage Group Poised to Raise 29th Roadside Memorial Confederate Battle Flag
We are pleased to announce that we signed a lease with a landowner yesterday for our next flag site! This will be our 29th flag site in the Commonwealth and we hope to have her up and flying before the end of the year. Stay tuned for more information!
Meanwhile, across the state, we have updates on several existing flag sites.
Repairs are completed and the Chesapeake Expressway Jackson Greys Memorial Battle Flag is back up and flying! Many thanks to each of you who contacted us to inquire about the status... and to John Sharrett and the Stonewall Camp #380, SCV, for their assistance in replacing the rope at the site.
I-64 Charlottesville Spirit of Defiance Memorial Battle Flag Update: In August, our attorney filed a Petition for Certiorari and Declaratory Judgement regarding the July 18, 2018 decision of the Board of Zoning Appeals of Louisa County. As of this writing, a January date has been set for a hearing on pending motions filed by Louisa County. We do not have a date yet for the full hearing. We will offer more updates as they are available. In the meantime, the flag is flying high and we installed new signage at the property...
Many thanks to all of our Guardians of the Flags across the Commonwealth, who have raised and lowered these massive flags ahead of several severe storms this fall, saving us wear and tear and thousands of dollars in replacements, as well as to each of our supporters who continue to give generously to keep these flags flying
