You Had Your Rally. Now What?
Looks like somewhere around 250 to 300 people showed up today in Lexington, Virginia with their replica Confederate flags to voice their frustration with the recent decision by administrators at W&L University to remove other replica Confederate flags from Lee Chapel. No surprise that this crowd appears oblivious to the fact that the university will soon display authentic Confederate battle flags inside the chapel.
Even though they will not be displayed around the Recumbent Lee memorial for preservation purposes, I still do not see how this can be perceived as anything other than a drastic improvement.
Today’s rally, like previous rallies in Lexington organized by the SCV, will achieve nothing.
