Operation BattleflagSaturday, 30 July 2005, 11:00 AMShiloh National Military ParkSavannah, Tennessee

There exists today a mindset in our battlefield park systems that is geared towards the elimination of anything Confederate. One has only to take a brief tour of parks such as Shiloh, Vicksburg, Gettysburg and others to become aware of this bias. At any of these War for Southern Independence battlefields you will look in vain for the flags of the Confederacy. The stars and stripes of our adversaries will be there alright, but you will not find our flags. Kinda makes you wonder who the Yankees were fighting all those years?
