The Confederate Flag You Never Knew

Via Billy

25 Wonderful Pieces On Jewish Confederates

As most things are in life, the meaning of the Confederate flag (CF) is much more nuanced than modern society will have you believe. In short, it is not the racist, treasonous symbol mainstream America makes it out to be. Rather, it is a symbol that celebrates Southern heritage and, specifically, the uniquely Southern sacrifice for this country, the United States.

What we call today the CF is really the Second Confederate Navy Jack (1863-1865). In square form, the flag was the battle flag of the Army of Northern Virginia. The design, the blue St. Andrew’s Cross on a red field, became the most recognizable symbol associated with the Confederacy. This piece will not address the legitimacy of the Confederate States of America (CSA), nor will it assess the merits of several states’ secession from the US. This debate exceeds the confines of this piece, not only due to its lengthiness but also due to its minimal bearing on the meaning of the CF today, as I will elaborate.


  1. It would be helpful, at least to me, if you could incorporate a link to Face Book on your posts. I read your posts every day and I'd like to get it to my friends list. You post relevant articles and I'd like to share them, giving you credit, of course.

    1. Certainly and I'll have to figure out how to do it! :)

    2. I can put FACEBOOK in my right column and when you click, it will go to my facebook page, but I don't believe this is what you have in mind............?

    3. All you have to do, if you want to share on FB, is copy the link in the browser address bar. Then paste it into a new status on FB.

    4. Thank you, but that means each and every time I put up a new post I would have to do this, correct? If so, I was led to believe the requester wanted a link on FNC that when clicked would route to Facebook, no? Thanks.
