Title: Flag Rallies

 

Flying a Confederate flag for Confederate Memorial Day? For reasons described later, in “Why is it important to honor Confederate veterans,” it is critical for any society to remember all of its war veterans—those who answered the call of duty, often at a great personal cost. Part of any appropriate war memorial is to fly the flag for the nation the veterans served, under which the soldiers and sailors fought and died. For Confederate veterans, the appropriate flag is a Confederate national flag or, perhaps, the Confederate battle flag. By an act of the legislature, the Old North State flies the first national flag, designed by a North Carolinian, each May 10 in commemoration of Confederate Memorial Day.
