Why Honor CSA Veterans? PDF Print E-mail

Why Should Confederate veterans be honored with other U.S. veterans? Because Southern veterans from the War Between the States fought for the Confederate States of America, defending their state and nation against the United States of America, it is inappropriate to honor Confederate veterans on the last Monday in May or to honor them using the modern version of a flag that flew over their enemy. Though some with the best intentions and motives honor North Carolina veterans from all wars at the same time, it is important to realize that the Old North State was not part of the United States from 1861 to 1865. Historical truth and faithfulness to the memory of our Confederate veterans require us to honor them on a separate day, using the flag under which they fought and died.
