Report from the Road

Having a great time on my 10-day Civil War trek through Tennessee, Virginia and Maryland. Yesterday our trip was covered by the Chattanooga News. Thanks to Sean Phipps for spending some time with the group.

I also learned through the grapevine that my friends with the Virginia Flaggers Facebook Page have taken an interest as well. The comments are hilarious. 🙂

That’s it for now.

      I can still read it.

    Never like to see threats of violence like this:
    Johnny UnReconstructed Levin has done much damage to the South. He deserves much more than a flagging and/or a flogging.

      It’s so impressive coming from a coward who hides behind an alias.

    Nice article in the paper. Have a great trip. Teachers are great.

      Thanks, Pat. It’s exhausting, but I am having a blast.

        Looks like they finally realized the potential liability of discussing violence against you on facebook and took that vile thread down.

    Hi Kevin,
    Have you come through Maryland/DC yet?

  • Rob Baker Aug 9, 2013 @ 8:01

    I believe they took the post down. I cannot see it.

      I guess John Zakrzewski finally took some time out from posting pictures of himself in a Confederate uniform.

    Did anyone screencap what was on the Flaggers’ FB page? They’ve taken it down.

Now that you've read the post, share your thoughts.
