Third Confederate Battle Flag Raised In Pittsboro, NC After Liberals Vote to Tear Down Confederate Monument




**BREAKING ** THIRD ROADSIDE BATTLE FLAG RAISED IN PITTSBORO, NC**
This afternoon, a THIRD Roadside Memorial Battle Flag was raised on a 50' pole on Highway 421 in Chatham County, NC, in response to the August 19 vote by The Chatham County Board of Commissioners to force the removal of the Confederate monument there.

This project, like the first two, was a joint effort by the Virginia Flaggers, ACTBAC NC, Old North State Flaggers, and a group of determined Chatham County residents.
We are thrilled at the reaction and support from local citizens, who are fed up with the attempts by activist liberals to eradicate local history and disrespect their veterans.
We did not ask for this fight, but we are in it for the long haul. We have only just begun. Weekly protests by citizens on the courthouse grounds are growing, and land is already being cleared for flag site #4...

Violence and Vandalism in Charlottesville Days After a Judge Rules Memorials Must Stay


BREAKING NEWS ALERT from our friends at the Gordonsville Grays, SCV Camp #2301
 
Many of you probably heard that the Lee and Jackson monuments in Charlottesville were damaged this week, just days after a judge ordered a PERMANENT injunction to prevent the city from destroying or removing them, and ruling that the monuments were protected by Virginia State Law (see info below for more details). The spray paint was removed from the LEE monument today, but remains on the Jackson monument, and upon closer inspection, it appears that someone has attempted to destroy the magnificent memorial by hammering away at the feet and faces on the front of the monument.
This is how the left operates. When they don't get their way, they result to violence, vandalism and criminal activity. We need your help to put a stop to this before it is too late.
Please call Parks & Rec at (434) 970-3260 and insist on expedited clean up and repair to the Jackson monument and updates on the progress.
Call the Charlottesville Police Department (434) 970-3280 and insist they protect BOTH monuments. If they can put officers there around the clock to prevent the (illegal) tarps from being removed, then they can certainly do the same to prevent them from being destroyed by the local communists.
*Detective Young is the person assigned to the case. We suggest leaving messages for Chief Brackney too.
Report from our friends at The Monument Fund, September 13:
 
"We will post a more in-depth synopsis of today’s proceeding next week, but we are elated and grateful to report that the monuments to Robert E. Lee and Thomas Jonathan “Stonewall” Jackson will continue to stand in Charlottesville, Virginia and that Judge Moore will award Attorney’s Fees in an amount to be determined in the very near future.
The rule of law prevailed in Charlottesville, Virginia today!
We would like to express our deepest gratitude to attorneys Ralph Main and Colt Puryear; to The Monument Fund’s Executive Director Jock Yellott; to Spokesperson Charles “Buddy” Weber; to the Virginia Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans; and to each individual Plaintiff on this case.
We would also like to thank Judge Moore for his very thoughtful and careful approach to this complex and long case. Those of us fortunate enough to have sat in on the proceedings over this 2 1/2 year period appreciate his humor, patience, and intelligence - he is an asset to this community.
And, finally to you - for your monetary donations; prayers; words of encouragement; and support. You have been an invaluable resource throughout this process.
A glass raised to us all on this monumental achievement!"

HUGE Confederate Battle Flag Raised on Highway to Protest Vote to Remove Confederate Memorial



**NEW ROADSIDE MEMORIAL BATTLE FLAG RAISED IN PITTSBORO, NC**
On Monday, August 19, The Chatham, NC County Board of Commissioners voted 4-1 to force the removal of the Confederate monument which has stood at the historic courthouse in Pittsboro since the UDC erected in 1907 as a memorial to the county's Confederate dead. The vote was 4-1 to attempt to remove it, in violation of state law, and against the wishes of the majority of citizens of the county and the hundreds who attended the meeting and spoke in opposition.
Almost immediately, local citizens, outraged at the blatant disregard for their wishes and the attempt to desecrate their war memorial, reached out to Confederate heritage organizations and offered land to erect Confederate battle flags in response to the decision.
Today, the Old North State Flaggers, ACTBAC NC, and the Va Flaggers came together to make the first one happen and respond directly to the commissioners' vote.

This afternoon, a 10' x15' Confederate Battle Flag was raised on a 50' pole adjacent to Hwy 64 Business just one block from the town of Pittsboro. This is the first of several flag sites planned, and comes just days before a planned prayer vigil and monument rally in downtown Pittsboro, Saturday, September 14th, 11:30 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. Pittsboro Historical Courthouse. Make plans to attend and let your voice be heard!

Apparently, these folks did not pay attention to what happened in nearby Danville, Va when that city council made the mistake of removing one tiny 3x5 Confederate flag from a historical monument on the grounds of the Last Capitol of the Confederacy.
We have not yet begun to fight.
All glory to God. All honor to the Confederate soldier.

Huge Confederate Battle Flag Returns to Hartsville, SC


 

After a brief absence, a lengthy court battle, and a lot of hard work, the Hartsville Hwy 151 Roadside Memorial Battle Flag is back up and flying!!

The haters celebrated when it came down, underestimating the resolve and determination of our people. Special thanks to Kam Harrell and the folks at Sky High Poles for their hard work in getting it back up, and our friends at Save Southern Heritage in SC for fighting and funding the legal battle and their steadfast support.

God bless all who continue to fight, and God Save the South!

Field Day of the Past Officials Ban Confederate Heritage Groups

Va Flaggers, SCV Denied Vendor Booths at Field Day of the Past Event


We are extremely disappointed to announce that the folks at Field Day of the Past are denying the Va Flaggers, The Edumnd Ruffin Fire-Eaters Camp #3000, SCV, the Army of Northern Virginia Mechanized Cavalry and the Sally Tompkins Chapter #2, Virginia Society, Order of the Confederate Rose admittance as vendors in this year's event, and have informed us that we will not be allowed to return.

The reasons have varied greatly over the past 9 months in which we have tried to work this out quietly and peacefully, with everything from the "political nature" of the battle flag to the fact that our stickers were found applied to poles and other objects, to complaints about the large flag we raised at our booth last year, to political stickers on a car parked at one of the sites given as the reason.

We did everything in our power to prevent this, addressing every legitimate complaint they came up with and even meeting with them to try and clear up the obvious miscommunications. We have always enjoyed HUGE support at this event and have done our part to promote and support it for several years now, but at this point, we can no longer do so. We are asking anyone who supports Confederate heritage to boycott this event, any participants/vendors to
pull their support, and for everyone to contact Field Day officials to let them know why you won't be attending.

Field Day of the Past, 2018. The display of this mega flag at our space was cited as one of the reasons we were denied a space this year. It looks like the handful who were offended are celebrating and giving the Field Day of the Past officials kudos for finally ending the "overtly racist display of the battle flag" at their events. Should be an interesting crowd this year.
The local media quickly picked up the story and the backlash has been swift and strong.  Vendors and other groups who support Confederate heritage have withdrawn from the event, and hundreds have pledged to boycott.

One of the many folks upset by the news was a local resident who hosts a swap meet event the same Saturday as the Field Day Event, just a few miles away, hosting over 12,000 visitors.  We received a call from the organizer, who let us know that he would be honored to have us attend their event, and set up a booth near the front entrance to make sure that all who attend know where they stand on the issue.

Come see us!

Historical Society Loses State Funding After Refusing to Remove Confederate Memorial and Flag

 

In Georgetown, Delaware, a beautiful Confederate monument was erected by our friends of the Delaware Grays Camp #2068, sons of Confederate Veterans, honoring Delaware citizens who fought and in some cases, died, serving the Confederacy.  The memorial also displays flags, one of which is the Confederate battle flag, the flag of the men honored.  The memorial is on private property and the Georgetown Historical Society, understanding the importance of honoring ALL veterans and ALL of their history, has refused calls in the past by the left to remove the flag.

State Democratic Senator Trey Paradee has been one of the most vocal opponents of the monument and flag.  Unable to pressure the Historical Society and museum to do his bidding, he decided to call upon the state legislature to pull ALL support of the museum in an attempt to blackmail the Georgetown Historical Society into removing the flag.  He got his way last week, when the legislature voted to terminate the $14,000 that had been set aside to help fund the museum, which is a wonderful tribute to the area’s history and heritage.

https://www.delawareonline.com/story/news/2019/07/22/confederate-flag-costs-georgetown-historical-society-14-k-state-funding/1753885001/

Paradee’s antics mean that the small, privately held museum will struggle to make ends meet and keep their doors open.   This is how the left operates.  If they can’t get their way by bullying, they resort to blackmail and extortion.

So far, the good folks of the Georgetown Historical Society have stood their ground and refused to pander to the ignorance and bigotry of this man, but they need our help.  We need to make up the $14,000 that the state of Delaware has pulled from them. There is a gofundme link listed below.  If you want to be a part of keeping that battle flag flying and the monument up, PLEASE take a moment right now to donate.  Let’s not only make up the $14,000 that was taken away…let’s do EVEN MORE!

Charlottesville RE Lee Monument Cleaned Up Hours After Desecration



**UPDATE**. Your calls made a difference! Charlottesville public works had the monuments cleaned up by the time these photos were taken around noon this afternoon.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR DILIGENCE!

Now please continue to contact the Charlottesville police department at (434) 970-3280 and request an immediate and thorough investigation of the crime.
(From our earlier email)...Someone vandalized the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee in downtown Charlottesville overnight, this time with an expletive (blurred) directed at President Donald J. Trump, blue paint on the base, and another word on the back. This is what happens when your city is ruled by lawlessness and disrespect. Welcome to Wes Bellamy's Charlottesville.
In the meantime, we will hire some private security to keep an eye on the monuments over the next few days, and continue our complete and total boycott of the City of Charlottesville and call on all God-fearing, law abiding, decent citizens to do the same.

Confederate Battle Flag Returns over I-95 in Fredericksburg

 

  

FREDERICKSBURG I-95 Memorial Battle Flag UPDATE!!!

Your response to our request for help was swift and generous, and we were able to hire a pole climber to replace the pulley system just days after the request was made. The work was performed FRIDAY EVENING and I am pleased to report that the massive 20’ x 30’ flag is BACK UP AND FLYING, just in time for Memorial Day, and the FIFTH anniversary of her dedication over Memorial Day weekend in 2014.

 

 
A supporter sent the above photos from over the holiday weekend and reported that on several occasions traffic was backed up over 5 miles over the stretch of highway that includes the flag, giving thousands of motorists a good eyeful of our beautiful Southern Cross!

God bless each and every one of you whose generous support made this happen so quickly. May she forever wave in honor and memory of our Confederate dead and in defiance of those who wish to remove every trace of our history and heritage.

All glory to God.
All honor to the Confederate soldier.
It's not about us.

Unreconstructed Virginia State Flags Now Available - Marking the 158th Anniversary of her Birth


The Virginia State Flag celebrates its 158th anniversary today!
Ours is a state flag steeped deeply in Confederate History and Heritage. Born and bathed in secession, her first four years of existence was to fly over the brave Confederate soldiers and citizens of Virginia. It was Robert E Lee who gave it original luster, flying the flag made of the seal his own Great-Uncle helped to create. The motto is world famous and has endured the test of time.  Even the beautiful Salute to the Virginia Flag was written by a member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, and is based directly on the Salute to the Confederate Flag.
To mark the occasion, the Va Flaggers are pleased to introduce a 3x5 version of the 1861 "Unreconstructed" Virginia State Flag, available for purchase from our new online store!

Order yours here:
https://www.shopvaflaggers.com/product-page/3-x-5-unreconstructed-virginia-state-flag

Fly the only Virginia State flag the Virginia Flaggers fly, this affordable reproduction of the TRUE Virginia state flag of 1861.

Happy Virginia State Flag Day, ya'll!

Was Lincoln's Proclamation Freeing the Slaves Truly Worthy of the Praise Which it has Received?



April is Confederate History and Heritage Month in the Old Dominion, as well as in many states across the South. As part of the celebration, and in an effort to educate the citizens of the Commonwealth, we will present a Q&A each day, from a Confederate Catechism, by Lyon Gardiner Tyler, 1853-1935; the son of President, John Tyler, who also was a member of the Confederate congress. He was a professor of literature at the College of William and Mary, and served as President of the College of William and Mary from 1888 until 1919.

Day 14:
17. Did the South, as alleged by Lincoln in his messages and in his Gettysburg speech, fight to destroy popular government throughout the world?
No; the charge was absurd. Had the South succeeded, the United States would still have enjoyed all its liberties, and so would Great Britain, France, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, and all other peoples. The danger to popular government came from Lincoln himself. In conducting the war, Lincoln talked about "democracy" and "the plain people," but adopted the rules of despotism and autocracy, and under the fiction of "war powers" virtually abrogated the Constitution, which he had sworn to support.

18. Was Lincoln's proclamation freeing the slaves worthy of the praise which it has received?
No; his proclamation was a war measure merely. He had no humanitarian purpose in view, and only ten days before its issuance he declared that "the possible consequences of insurrection and massacre in the Southern States" would not deter him from its use, whenever he should deem it necessary for military purposes. (Nicolay and Hay, Complete Works of Abraham Lincoln, I/, p. 235.)

Were Southerners "rebels" in seceding from the Federal Union?



April is Confederate History and Heritage Month in the Old Dominion, as well as in many states across the South. As part of the celebration, and in an effort to educate the citizens of the Commonwealth, we will present a Q&A each day, from a Confederate Catechism, by Lyon Gardiner Tyler, 1853-1935; the son of President, John Tyler, who also was a member of the Confederate congress. He was a professor of literature at the College of William and Mary, and served as President of the College of William and Mary from 1888 until 1919.
Day 13:

16. Were the Southerners "rebels" in seceding from the Federal Union?

The term "rebel" had no application to the Southern people, however much it applied to the American colonists. These last called themselves "Patriots," not rebels. Both Southerners in 1861 and Americans in 1776 acted under the authority of their State governments. But while the colonies were mere departments of the British Union, the American States were creators of the Federal Union. The Federal government was the agent of the States for the purposes expressed in the Constitution, and it is absurd to say that the principal can rebel against the agent.

President Jackson threatened war with South Carolina in 1833, but admitted that in such an event South Carolinians taken prisoners would not be "rebels" but prisoners of war. The Freesoilers in Kansas and John Brown at Harper's Ferry were undoubtedly "rebels," for they acted without any lawful authority whatever in using force against the Federal Government, and Lincoln and the Republican party, in approving a platform which sympathized with the Freesoilers and bitterly denounced the Federal Government, were rebels and traitors at heart.
