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.


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!

What part of “historical” do they not understand!

I am so upset with so many trying to re-write our history. I am a historian as well as a genealogist and these types of things make me furious.

More power to those who stand up and take the brunt now. There will be others to come for correct.

God bless.
