Subject: Va Flaggers: Honor the Truth and the Men Who Fought to Defend It

"The Confederate battle flag was a soldier’s flag. It was born on the battlefield and carried by the men who were fighting to defend our country from an enemy bent not on liberation, but conquest. Are we to take it down then, and meekly acquiesce in the perpetuation of that colossal lie that has been leveled against us for 150 years? Or should we let it fly to honor the truth and the men who fought under it?" – Va Flagger/Author H.V. "Bo" Traywick, Jr.
