Pride in my Flag

 My flag misrepresented by its critics

There are those who oppose everything Confederate or Traditionally Southern, and they do so while denying the true meaning of our history, heritage and unique cultiure. The below lists several truths about our Confederate Flag, but there are many more, for example, no Confederate Flag ever flew over an international slave ship. Slave shiips, which brought African Negroes to the States. Additionally, no mass graves of Negro Slave slaves, were ever located within the member States of the Confederacy. My Flag is an honorable flag, which flew over Confederate Soildiers, fighting for the independence of their nation.
 


The flag that was the symbol of slavery on the high seas for a long time was not the Confederate battle flag, it was sadly the Stars and Stripes. Alan Keyes

 

"Every man should endeavor to understand the meaning of subjugation before it is too late… It means the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern schoolteachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the war; will be impressed by the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit objects for derision… It is said slavery is all we are fighting for, and if we give it up we give up all. Even if this were true, which we deny, slavery is not all our enemies are fighting for. It is merely the pretense to establish sectional superiority and a more centralized form of government, and to deprive us of our rights and liberties."
Maj. General Patrick R. Cleburne, CSA, January 1864


"Nothing fills me with deeper sadness than to see a Southern man apologizing for the defense we made of our inheritance. Our cause was so just, so sacred, that had I known all that has come to pass, had I known what was to be inflicted upon me, all that my country was to suffer, all that our posterity was to endure, I would do it all over again."  President Jefferson Davis, C.S.A.
