Subject: Va Flaggers – I-95 Memorial Battle Flag Projects Updates

Chester Site Work Day:  Join us on Saturday, March 29th, as we spend the day clearing and hauling away debris, trimming trees and vegetation, and cleaning up the flag site. We are asking for all able bodies to join us, and bring any equipment that may be helpful: Yard tools and tree trimming equipment, garbage bags, and vehicles to haul away debris.

We will work from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. with lunch provided. At the close of the day, we will switch the flag back out to the original custom ANV, now that the worst of the winter weather has passed and security is improved.

Come be a part of helping to improve conditions at the site, celebrating the six month anniversary of the raising of the flag, and help kick of Confederate History and Heritage Month in Virginia!

I-95 Memorial Battle Flag #2 is VERY near completion.

The pole and flag (which are nearly twice as tall and big as Flag #1) are paid for, but we are looking for assistance in covering the cost of installation, which will include the rental of a crane to set the pole. Please consider a donation to help us wrap this one up…

Contributions to the I-95 Memorial Battle Flag projects may be mailed to:

Since the announcement of the first I-95 Memorial Battle Flag, we have been contacted by several landowners wanting to be a part of these projects and we have several more in various stages of development.  We are constantly looking for more flag sites, so please contact us if you know of anyone with land adjacent to an interstate who may be interested in helping to continue this project across the Commonwealth and beyond. Donations of poles/flags/supplies are also welcome, as we prepare for future projects.

Thank you for your support!

“To tar the sacrifices of the Confederate soldier as simple acts of racism, and reduce the battle flag under which he fought to nothing more than the symbol of a racist heritage, is one of the great blasphemies of our modern age”.  James Webb-Secretary of Navy And Assistant Secretary of Defense under U.S. President Ronald Regan and former U.S. Senator (D.VA.)
