A celebration of Confederate flags at the capitol

Apr 7, 2012

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) Out on state capitol grounds, the Sons of Confederate Veterans observed the 150th anniversary of the War Between the States.

Attendees brought examples of flags used by Arkansas units and of the Confederate army during the Civil War. Those attending say the celebration is a reminder of sacrifices made by their ancestors.

Organizers say the celebration combined three separate events, the Arkansas Confederate History and Heritage Month, the Confederate Memorial Day and Confederate Flag Day.
