Earlier today, in a small, private ceremony, the Va Flaggers hoisted a 30’ x 50’ Confederate Battle Flag on a 120’ pole on property leased on Interstate 64 just outside of Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Charlottesville I-64 Spirit of Defiance Memorial Battle Flag was dedicated to the glory of God, and will fly in honor and memory of all Confederate soldiers, and specifically to remember Private Richard Willis Proffitt, 1st Battalion, Virginia Reserves, 57th Virginia Infantry, whose grave lies just a few yards from the new flag.  In a ceremony just before the flag raising and dedication, a Confederate Cross of Honor was installed and dedicated at the grave site.

The preservation of liberty and freedom guaranteed by our forefathers and embodied in the US Constitution of 1788, motivated these men to leave their loved ones and take up arms, and driven by duty and honor, they answered the call to defend their State from invasion. Their noble attributes are the underpinning of our republican society and represent the foundation on which this nation was built. These citizen-soldiers of all races, creeds, and faiths, who fought for the Confederacy, personified the best qualities of America.

As the sons and daughters of these gallant men, The Virginia Flaggers, along with the numerous benefactors and supporters of this flag, believe that it is our "...duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations." (Lieutenant General Stephen D. Lee, CSA)  It is our prayer that this flag will serve as a call for all Southerners to rise up, rally to our standard, and join the fight to defend our history and heritage, the honor of the Confederate soldier, the flags they fought and died beneath, and the monuments and memorials erected in their memory.

The Charlottesville I-64 Spirit of Defiance Memorial Battle Flag is the 27th memorial battle flag raised on major interstates and roadways across the Commonwealth by the Virginia Flaggers since the fall of 2013.  We received the offer of land and began work on the project shortly after Charlottesville City Council, led by disgraced City Councilman Wes Bellamy and Former City Councilman Kristen Szakos, voted to violate state law and attempt to tear down the magnificent Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson equestrian memorials in Lee and Jackson Parks in the city.

Over a year later, we are pleased to report that the monuments still stand, and are now joined by the first roadside Memorial Battle Flag in the Charlottesville area.
She will fly as a 24/7 reminder that the same spirit of defiance that drove our ancestors to take up arms in 1776 and 1861 is alive and well in us today and will not allow us to remain silent or sit idly by as our ancestors are the subjects of false narratives and lies by those who, driven by ignorance and hate, seek to destroy our history and heritage.


The Virginia Flaggers would like to thank all of those whose generous support made this project possible, with special appreciation to Sky High Poles (Danville, Va) and Dixiana Steel (Columbia, SC) for their assistance with the installation.

All glory to God.  All honor to the Confederate Soldier.

"Southern Avenger" Convicted, Sentenced to Jail Time for Charlottesville Tarp Removals

Richmond man accused of removing the illegal tarps placed over the Lee and Jackson monuments in Charlottesville convicted and sentenced to jail time. 

On Monday, Christopher James Wayne of Richmond was found guilty of trespassing and destruction of property valued at less than $1,000 on Feb. 16 and of trespassing on Feb. 23. The judge dismissed a charge of trespassing on Feb. 7.

The tarps were removed a dozen times since they were illegally placed by Charlottesville City Council, who used the death of a protestor last August as an excuse to cover the memorials after their plans to remove them were halted in court.  The final tarp removal by citizens occurred the same morning that a Charlottesville Circuit Court judge ruled  that the tarps must be removed.

For these three misdemeanor charges, Wayne was ordered to serve five months in jail. He also was ordered to pay $445, the cost of the tarp that he took down.
“I am appalled at the way people uphold justice and law here,” Wayne said in court Monday. He added that he was defending the statues as war monuments for the sake of fellow veterans.
In taking the unusual step of assigning jail time for misdemeanor charges, Judge Joseph Sirks claimed he was emphasizing the importance of following the legal process and appealing city decisions through the courts.
“We are in an age where someone takes action into their own hands and then everyone becomes a copycat,” Sirks said as he delivered his decision. “That doesn’t work in a system of the law.”

So...jail time for misdemeanor a PUBLIC remove ILLEGAL tarps...and damaging a $400 plastic tarp...

...While vandals in Durham, NC who are caught on film destroying a monument with an estimated $120,000 replacement cost...have all charges dismissed.

Charlottesville prosecutors did not even try to hide the fact that the prosecution and sentencing was "political" for the city, even mentioning the fact in court.  Anyone who has ever visited Lee or Jackson Parks in Charlottesville knows that both are havens for Charlottesvile's homeless population who are regularly removed for trespassing without receiving jail time.

In addition, the monuments have been desecrated numerous times in recent months, with no one ever charged for trespassing or damage caused.

Apparently, removing illegal tarps from protected war memorials is a serious threat to public safety and welfare in Charlottesville.

Mr. Wayne plans to appeal the conviction.  When asked if he had any regrets, his response was swift and certain.  "My only regret is that I didn't start snatching tarps sooner."

Washington & Lee "Diversity Gala" Features Mock Gay Wedding of Robert E Lee & George Washington

So, the same university that ripped period correct Memorial battle flags from Robert E Lee’s mausoleum in Lee Chapel to avoid "offending" anyone, is promoting THIS for the LGBT “Equality Gala” at Washington & Lee University this Saturday.

The tasteless flyer includes silhouettes of Robert E. Lee and George Washington "kissing" and can be found displayed throughout campus. Students are invited to "join in the celebration of George and Bob's wedding".

This is beyond disgraceful and an insult to the memory of both men... and is what happens when you give your institute of higher learning over to Godless liberals.

Are YOU mad enough yet?

The contact information on the flier is that of Rallie Snowden.  She is also active in anti-Confederate activism in Lexington and is a leader of the "CARE" group that fought to displace the SCV on Lee-Jackson Day.  Her W&L bio is here... 

She is employed as a COUNSELOR at the university.

If you would like to contact the university to express your outrage and disgust that such disrespect is tolerated and supported, see contact information below:
