It Was The Flag Of Robert E. Lee

Opinion | Alan Keyes
Contrary to what most people recognize as the Confederate flag is actually the battle flag of Gen. Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia. Unlike the Union, the Confederacy went through three different flags during the Civil War. The two later flags featured what is prominently associated with the Confederacy as a canton. The flag was seen as a source of Southern pride and reminded people of the Confederate soldiers who died in battle. However, its emblem has been transplanted to a symbol of modern white supremacist groups, which has put up a new debate of whether or not the flag should be banned in states that still honor it.
