It is with that in mind that I share the above photo, which I took in the visitor center at the Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park last week. The flag bunting lines both walls as you enter the building, one side of which features Confederate and the other Union generals. I was told by the staff that every once in a while they have to respond to a complaint, which I was not surprised to hear. As to the history behind the decision to feature both sides in this way I cannot say, but I find it to be both respectful and welcoming to all Americans. Of course, Confederate regiments out west utilized a number of flags in battle so perhaps that has something to do with the choice.
Given the last post, I also can’t imagine too many Confederate veterans having a problem with such a display.
