Remove "Silent Sam" from UNC-- Part 2

Private Warren Biggs was rejoined with his wife on April 15, 2000 at Pleasant Grove Church in Bailey, North Carolina after a 137-year separation.  This took place after the family had found his grave in Wilmington.

Dennis Rogers continued that Warren Biggs was buried in Nash County.  The First National Flag of the Confederacy, the Stars and Bars draped his coffin.

Mr. Rogers spends most Saturdays as a volunteer at Fort Anderson and Brunswick Town on the west bank of the Cape Fear River south of Wilmington.  He says the museum doesn't sell the controversial Second Confederate Navy Jack, but that he would resign if they did.

He made some interesting points about "Silent Sam's"  removal.
