There is a local community cemetary not far from me that is also some kind of Confederate monument. Apparently some graves of soldiers and at least one higher officer. For as long as I can remember, they have flown a massively large orange battle flag. I have no idea of the size, but it could be seen from quite a long distance.


Today, it was gone. There is now a much smaller one of the versions of the official CSA flag. Did they get a conscience? Did it get damaged in weather?


Guess I'll see next time I'm in the area, which isn't very often.

Makes you wonder though is CSA veterans are changing how they pay tribute.

Interesting that they honor traitors to the country...
