14. Symbol of Rebellion
Question 1: What region were you raised in?


Question 2: What region do you live in now?

Colorado (I can't stray from those mountains.

Question 3: What was your first exposure to the Confederate flag?

Mom was a History buff. She passed the bug onto me. She took me to a museum as a child. It was old Fort Garland. It had some Civil War exhibits. I gazed at a letter from Abraham Lincoln. And I was fascinated. From that day forward, I started a hobby of reading anything regarding the Civil War.

Question 4: What is your perception of the Confederate flag?

The Confederate Flag is a historical part of our history as a nation, but is not a part of it...It is a flag of rebellion, insurrection.
Today it is a symbol of those who can't let go of the past. Also a symbol of hate. That flag should never be flown. The Southern states are a part of this country, and only ONE FLAG should be flown.
