Virginia Flaggers is looking for land in Charlottesville to fly flags of the Confederacy.
The group's action is in response to the upcoming vote by Charlottesville City Council to stop observing Lee-Jackson Day. Virginia Flaggers is asking for roadside land to display flags of the Confederate States of America.
Group members visiting Charlottesville say ending the state holiday neglects an important chapter in Virginia's history, and Virginians need to be reminded of the southern veterans from the Civil War.
