Take the Lead!

Well, Rick, if you don’t see the Grand Old Flag flying very much in your little area of southern Alabama, then I guess you’ll have to do what I did – start flying it yourself and take the lead!
 
Of course, I chose the First National rather than the Battle Flag for two reasons: first, it was the first flag of the last Republic on this continent and secondly, it was John Singleton Mosby 43rd Battalion’s flag. Both of those reasons were good enough for me.
 
And given that I live in southern Noo Yawk (Long Island), I am probably takin’ a bigger chance flying The Colors than a good ol’ Alabama boy like yourself! 😀
