    Confederate Flag

    I couldn't find a Confederate flag to put with my profile. I'm not raceist, I'm not even white, but Cherokee. I had a lot of ancestors who gave their all while serving under that flag. Think we might get that option?

    Old Dog & Sling shot,

    I have lived in Pennsylvania all of my life. I guess that you could call me a "Yankee". I don't see a problem with posting the Confedrate flag as an option. Just my two cents.

    OD,

    Great picture of that flag. Thanks for posting.

    Re: Confederate Flag

    Just something I picked up along the way. LOL

    My ancestors fought on the confederate side,
    but that side lost.
    They were veterans none the less.
    They deserve the same distinction any vet gets.

    Re: Confederate Flag

    Slingshot,

    The flag that was posted by Old Dog was never actually used to represent the Confederacy.  Not a single soldier died for that flag.  Part of the problem with the rectangular flag like the one posted above is that it is now found offensive as a symbol of racism by some. 

    The flag posted below is the Confederate Battle Flag in the style you're thinking of (one of many battle flags for the South).  It is square in shape.  As a CW relic hunter and researcher, I see no problem with you having the square flag as your avatar--and I posted one below that might work for you.  Sometime in the future, someone will probably find it offensive--but their offense will be misdirected.

    If you look at the Sons of Confederate Veterans home page for example, you'll see the flag below--Not the flag posted above.


    Regards,


    Buckleboy

    No, but if people want to post a flag that honors their veteran ancestors then this is the only one of the two posted above that makes sense.  The rectangular one has no historical basis. 

    I wouldn't personally choose to put this flag on my avatar--and I do have ancestors that fought for the South from Virginia. 


    But since this is one of the most misunderstoood facts about flags--one which always burns me up when I see the rectangular one flown with "pride"--I thought I'd take the time to type a few comments about it.

    Yeah--Folks have been confusing this flag for decades and decades.  As I recall, there was a rectangular version in use by the Confederate Navy at the time--but the blue stripes were lighter colored.  On most incorrect rectangular "southern flags," they are navy blue instead of more of a "sky blue."  But notice the colors on the General Lee--I think this is the Confed. Navy flag! So it is correct, I believe...

This answer was correct. History teaches that Abraham Lincoln was President of the United States during the Civil War, actually we had two Presidents and they never put Jefferson Davis with the other forty-five Presidents or ever how many we have already had? The only time the name of Jefferson Davis is mentioned is during the Civil War chapters of our history books. Friends let me tell you there are tons and tons of history that is left out because our government does not feel that it is proper.

    When I was in high school we had reading assignments for our literature classes. We had to read books that were not located in our school library, they were locked up in a room separate, you could not get into this room without being accompanied by a teacher. There were books in there of the old world-------books that were written before the Flood of Noah------there were books written by a blind man that the Angel Gabriel recited to him------there were books in there that described weapons of the past that we have not invented yet. Forgive me if I have gotten off on the wrong path here, but this is just something I have to tell. Our education system is bias when it comes to what we should or should not be taught and I myself think it is a disgrace that we can not read this and decide for ourselves but our government would rather that you do not know about it or even hear about it. I read books, now these are not fiction, about aircraft that were invisible, the pilot had to eat certain foods on certain days and the plane flew by mental thoughts. They could see inside the enemies planes. This is just some of books I got to read, which wasn't very many-----maybe ten. That room was about eighty feet long and thirty feet wide with shelves of books we are not allowed to read. Has anyone else ever heard of such a thing?

    By the way, I like the CSA Battle Flag also, as well as all the flags of each individual state.


    Sorry Nick, I stole from you!!!

    Re: Confederate Flag

    I have the deepest respect for ANY vetern that fought for their cause under any flag... no matter the country - no matter the reason. They should all be proud.

    I do NOT however always have that same respect for the governments that sent them to fight.

    All soldiers, no matter the team, are brothers IMO - the flag they fought under was the very symbol for all the felt and fought for.
