A viewer requested that I make a video concerning Susan Hathaway and the Virginia Flaggers. I was not aware of this group but, after doing some initial research, I was impressed. The Virginia Flaggers is an organization dedicated to preserving Virginia’s history and heritage.
Over 150 years have passed since the Civil War. During those years Americans reconciled and honored the memory of the soldiers who fought on both sides in that horrible war. I personally have an ancestor who died fighting for the Union as part of the Indiana Regiment. Despite my family history of fighting for the North, my father gave me the middle name of “Lee” in honor of that great Virginian - General Lee.
Now extremist organizations such as the SPLC, are cheering the ISIS like destruction of monuments and gravesites of Confederate soldiers. Such organizations hate traditional America and want to erase our past. Thankfully, we have brave people such a Susan Hathaway who are willing to honor their ancestors.
