Virginia Flaggers are pleased to report the installation of a NEW
Roadside Memorial Battle Flag in the Commonwealth! This flag, our 30th
since we raised our first one in September of 2013, was raised earlier
this morning to the Glory of God, and in honor and memory of Virginia’s
Confederate Veterans, on Rt. 40 in Pittsylvania County, on a busy stretch
that is heavily traveled by travelers and tourists headed to Smith
We want to thank Governor Northam and Virginia Democrats for the uptick
in folks contacting us about putting battle flags on their property. It
seems their disgraceful attempts to denigrate our history and heritage,
dishonor our veterans, and desecrate our monuments and memorials has
backfired and hopefully will be the catalyst to wake the sleeping giant
of Confederate resistance in the Commonwealth and help to turn Virginia
back in the right direction.
Site #31 is in progress. Stay tuned for information on the upcoming flag raising/dedication service.
Many thanks to each and every one of you whose generous support makes
all of this possible. Without your contributions, and the dedication
and hard work of an army of volunteers, construction on new sites and
maintenance of existing ones would be impossible.
All glory to God. All honor to the Confederate soldier.

are pleased to support our friends at J.E.B. Stuart Birthplace
Preservation Trust in their efforts to erect a new monument at Laurel
Hill. This is exactly how we should be responding to the disgraceful
attempts to remove our memorials... raise more! We ask you to consider
making a contribution to this worthy endeavor...
Board of Directors of the JEB Stuart Birthplace Preservation Trust
announces a fundraising campaign to erect a monument at Laurel Hill.
This effort is actually a continuation of a monument fundraiser started a
number of years ago, but was tabled due to cost and other
considerations. The Board feels now is the right time to fulfill that
obligation. This monument, which will be unveiled in 2020, the 30th
anniversary of the organization, will be of granite, standing seven feet
tall, with mounted bronze plaques. One plaque will show an image of
Stuart in his early years at Laurel Hill, a rendition done by local
artist Allen Weidhaas. JEB Stuart VI posed for this model when he was
younger. The second plaque will have quotes from letters JEB wrote in
later years, telling of his feelings and desire to return to the place
of his birth. The dedication will be announced at a later date.
may feel that today’s political climate dose not lend itself to
building new monuments. The Board of Directors would argue the opposite,
that more monuments, statuary, and interpretive signs should erected,
not just to Stuart’s time, but to all historical figures, who are part
of our country’s collective history and heritage.
donations to this monument will be greatly appreciated. Donations of
twenty-five dollars or more will receive a bronze monument medallion and
donors will be duly noted in upcoming editions of the Trust’s
newsletter, Reconnaissance. Thank you for your support in our
