Virginia Flaggers I-95 Battle Flag Project

 

The Va Flaggers are THRILLED to announce that we have finalized a lease to acquire property adjacent to Interstate 95, just South of Richmond, and will be erecting a 50’ pole, on which a 10 x15 Confederate Battle Flag will fly 24/7, 365 days of the year.

The flag will serve to welcome visitors and commuters to Richmond, and remind them of our honorable Confederate history and heritage. The location is also historically significant, as Confederate troops are believed to have camped in and around the area during the Bermuda Hundred Campaign.

Site work will begin next week, with a September 28th Flag Raising/Dedication slated.

We have received an excellent deal on a pole, with an internal halyard. Much of the site work will be by volunteers and donations, and we expect to be able to complete this project at a cost of just under $3,000.

If you are interesting in contributing to the project, please make a check payable to “Virginia Flaggers” (Note: I-95 Flag Project in memo) and mail to:

Va Flaggers
P.O. Box 547
Sandston, VA 23150

Contributions can also be made through PayPal here…

Donations are NOT tax deductible as we have vowed to NEVER have the burden of 501c3 status to prevent us from fighting the good fight to defend our Confederate ancestors.

    1. That's just great man and thanks. As to the spotlight, I'll be happy to ask Susan, but I'm sure they need to cover the other stuff first.

  2. Thank you so much, Mr. Pirate, Sir! ;) We definitely do plan on lighting her at night, most likely with solar lighting. I hope you have the opportunity to see her one day.
    Thanks again, and God bless!

  3. I travel I95 quite frequently between Richmond and Fredericksburg on business so it wouldn't be a far stretch to go south and see the flag. Thanks so much for working so hard for a great cause.

  4. I think that's great! I'm tired of all this p.c. crap. Maybe the ignorant liberals should check out the history behind the flag. I'm glad you're doing it.

  7. Congratulations, all you Left-Of-Lenin liberals for your publicity, since it is helping the Cause!:)

    ****************************

    Mother Jones broke it first and, of course, the other liberal rags jumped right on it.

    All good in the end though, because donations and supports are flooding in. :)

    1. You have kindred souls in your state and one fighter is Lady Val who recently penned this concerning the MOC.

      Regarding the present crisis at the Museum of the Confederacy:

      The problem with Rawls is that he does not consider the Confederacy a legitimate government but an insurrection against the legal power of the federal (US) government. He disregards the constitutionality of secession, the proper means by which those states that seceded did so (through convention) and the fact that even if secession had been questionable as a resort by the sovereign states, to declare war on those states was UNQUESTIONABLY treason according to Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution.

      Most people who see secession as insurrection (including my beloved John Mosby) point to the Whiskey Rebellion put down by the federal government under Washington. But what they (conveniently) forget is that the federal government was ASKED to put down the rebellion by the sovereign state in which it took place! Yes, the federal government could invade a state to put down insurrection, but only if the legitimate government of that state requested it to do so! That is what took place in the Whiskey Rebellion but that is not what took place in 1861.

      As long as Rawls and his compatriots on the Board of the MoC believe that all their artifacts represent is a treasonous uprising against the legitimate government, you can be sure that the wishes of those of us who believe otherwise will be rejected.

  11. Screw what the media and NAACP says. Let her fly. I'm a proud descendent of a Confederate veteran and I'm only half white. If we went back to 1861 and the Confederacy freed the slaves, there would still have been a war. State rights not hate.

      Lincoln On Original 13th Amendment
      http://www.namsouth.com/viewtopic.php?t=132&highlight=13th+amendment

      1. I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.

      I understand a proposed amendment to the Constitution--which amendment, however, I have not seen--has passed Congress, to the effect that the Federal Government shall never interfere with the domestic institutions of the States, including that of persons held to service. To avoid misconstruction of what I have said, I depart from my purpose not to speak of particular amendments so far as to say that, holding such a provision to now be implied constitutional law, I have no objection to its being made express and irrevocable.

    2. Based on this I take it that it would be fine with you if African-Americans were still slaves. But you're right, it's not racist.

  15. Not a US Citizen, not a Southerner ... In light of the PC propaganda rife in the US today I fully support your efforts to fly the Battle Flag. Might I suggest you honour not only those who fought for the Confedracy but the Nation as a whole by adding either the 1st or 3rd Confederate flag.

    1. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd are the Confederacy's national flags of course, but not maligned like the Battle Flag, though it is part of the 2nd and 3rd.

  16. way to go. as the non flaggers say get over the history. well this is history. when we fought against the malcom X. they protested at it is their freedom of speach. i am far from racist. but come folks. it is on private land if you dont want to look at it then dont. my thoughts are lets get back to the time when we all lived together the rebel flag is part of history.

  17. I think it is great to stand your ground. I wouldn't let people tell me what to do on my own property. The ones that are complaining about the flag don't know anything about it and the white man will always get blamed for slavery. Just keep the flag up and don't worry about people or laws. Tell me I can't do something and I will show you I can.

  18. This is a great memorial to our history. We cannot change the past but we can honor those who fought for our country in one way or another. Stand tall and stand proud, remember....it's about honor and not hate.

  19. This flag is that of a foreign country. It is the flag flown by people at war against the United States of America. The people under this flag were fighting for a right to own other people, in a word, slavery. Yes, it is disrespectful and an insult to Americans as much as if any other foreign flag were being flown.

    1. I guess you mean a Collectivist cause and if so, no I haven't, in fact I spent many years in Vietnam giving support to others who were killing them and would be more than happy to do so again. Any more asinine, irrelevant comments?
