Description: "And ’twill live in song and story, Though its folds are in the dust" is printed at right.  The back has a great description:  "One of the most pleasing as well as spectacular features of the great re-union of C.S.A. Veterans, which was held in Richmond in May-June 1907 for the purpose of participating in the exercises incident to the unveiling of the Jeb Stuart & Jefferson Davis Monuments, was the arrangement and costuming of 600 school children in the form and colors of a Confederate battle flag.  The children occupied a stand within the Lee Monument enclosure, and aroused the greatest enthusiasm by their singing "Dixie" and other Southern Airs".

  • Hmmm….

    Can’t understand why this postcard has caught your interest.

    Have you taken up raccoon hunting?

    Or are you planning a human Confederate flag project for your students?

  • Border, — I hope this isn’t a sign of a little insecurity. Please don’t assume that I believe this has anything to do with race.
