Virginia Governor Tim Kaine is expected to approve $400,000 in aid to the Museum of the Confederacy. See the story here. Apparently Brag Bowling – former post commander – is still hoping for an invitation or opportunity for the Virginia Division Sons of Confederate Veterans to exert more influence over the operations of the museum. If you missed my earlier post I have it on good authority that there are no planned talks with the SCV.
"We don’t have to take the thing over, but if there is a way the SCV could exert more influence and help them, we want to do it," Mr. Bowling said yesterday. "I honestly feel they have kind of lost their way and kind of separated themselves from the good general Confederate community."
Thanks for the offer Brag, but many of us would like to see the MOC continue to focus on history and not fantasy.
