The Confederacy Under Attack

I have been covering this on my other Civil War blog, Saw the Elephant.

A man in Minnesota cause quite the stir when he drove a fire truck with a Confederate flag in a parade in Albert Lea.

South Carolina has a teachable moment with the flag.

Florida Veterans Hall m ceremony draws a Confederate protest at exclusion of Confederate veterans.

Confederate Flag Kills Ten in Chicago...Oh Wait.  This was the headline of an article on the 4th of July killings in Chicago.

Iowa State professors and students support the removal of the Confederate flag in S.C..

Norfolk Naval Shipyard removed Confederate flag.  Flew alongside with American, British and Virginian flags.  All removed and taken to a museum.

North Carolina House of Representatives gave tentative approval to a controversial bill to protect historical monuments and memorials.  Opponents say it will protect those of the Confederacy.

This was actually supposed to be in my Saw the Elephant Blog where I am covering this attack in greater detail.  This will probably be the last time I write about it in this blog as I prefer to do the history from the war.
