Subject: Fwd: Va Flaggers: A Confederate Flag at Savage’s Station!
A Confederate flag for Savage’s Station!
On June 29th, the anniversary of the battle of Savage’s Station, a young man placed a single stick battle flag at the marker commemorating the event, and in honor and memory of his 8 Confederate ancestors who fought there to defend hearth and home from unwarranted invasion.
He was dishearened when the flag was removed just a few short days later. Over the course of the next few weeks, he replaced the flag several times, and each time, it was stolen. He then began placing flags on all five markers, and labeling them with a note listing the name of his ancestor, explaining that flag was left in his memory, and asking them not to be removed. Again, the flags were stolen.
After replacing them several times, over several weeks, the young man contacted the owner of the land, adjacent to the markers, and the very land on which the battle was fought, and acquired permission to erect a pole and Confederate flag on his property, just a few feet behind the markers.
A pole was quickly acquired by donation, and a flag was raised TODAY… a living breathing, 24/7/365 reminder to all who visit the battle field, of the honor and valor of the Confederate soldiers who fought and died there. Special 54 x 54 ANV flags are on order, and will be installed by the end of the week.
This young flagger says he got his inspiration when he saw the Confederate flag that was erected on private land just behind the Federal Monument at Point Lookout. We cannot express our pride and gratitude for his dedication and perseverance, and the fact that instead of giving up, he found a way to turn his anger, and the misconduct of others ,into a true victory for the Confederate soldier!
God bless this young Fire-Eater, and GOD SAVE THE SOUTH!
