A group dedicated to restoring the Confederate flag to sites around Virginia has enlisted a drone to help its cause.
“The Va Flaggers debuted a new weapon in our arsenal over the weekend,” the group announced in a Facebook post yesterday. “Further testing and fine-tuning will take place over the coming days and weeks, but we are excited about the prospects, to say the least.”
The drone was flown over Hollywood Cemetery, where it captured images of the top of a pyramid-shaped Confederate monument.
Group leader Susan Hathaway said in an email that the drone testing is being done in “to assist in our heritage defense efforts.”
