Resolution adopted unanimously by the GEC
These being the facts: The Museum of the Confederacy has long been on a path to downplay it’s role in commemorating the Confederacy. It is opening a new facility in Appomattox where it refuses to display a Confederate flag on a pole outside the building.
Thus be it resolved: The General Executive Council of the Sons of Confederate Veterans does call upon the Museum of the Confederacy to display a Confederate Flag on a pole on the outside of the Appomattox facility. That such a display is both historically accurate and morally necessary.
Be it also resolved: The General Executive Council of the Sons of Confederate Veterans does strongly urge it’s Compatriots not to be participants in the opening ceremony of said facility. To do so lends credence to the claims of those refusing to display the Confederate flag in its proper station.
