I'm Yankee (20 years) by birth, and Southern (26 years) by the grace of God. History, if left up to the politically correct, will be as skewed on the facts surrounding the Confederate flag as it is skewed on the founding of this Christian nation. Lee Herron's letter ("Flag removal was hurtful betrayal," Sept. 23) said it all.
Also, it's a crying shame when history can be so susceptible to falsification by those in authority. They are traitors to the state, to the people and to history. So much for "of the people, by the people and for the people." That's laughable now.
I love the Confederate flag and the history behind her. I mean the real history. Not the "cause" taken by a few who have foisted it upon the masses. Some people just have to stir up something. It's hateful and a shame.
It sickens me every time I hear about that flag misrepresented by special interests. Then, out of fear, those who were sworn to protect her abandon her and run.
For those of you who have the opportunity to protect her and her heritage, and don't: Shame on you! Let me stop there. Words fitly spoken are soon running out.
