Flagging the VMFA 2-15-2014
Despite FRIGID temperatures, cold rain, and a chilly wind, the Va Flaggers took advantage of a very brief break in the rain to head down to to the Boulevard and post and forward the colors to protest the VMFA Virginia Museum of Fine Arts? and their forced removal of Confederate Battle Flags from the portico of the Confederate Memorial Chapel. This was the THIRD day of flagging this week, reminding museum officials that far from backing down, we are more determined than ever to stand for our Confederate ancestors and the flags they died beneath.
