Henry commissioners on Confederate flag flap: We’re working on it

Via Billy

The Henry County Commission said today that it is looking into the closing of a museum on a county-owned Confederate battlefield, a closure that has roiled the county.

“Many are aware of an issue which has caused the Friends of Nash Farm to announce that their museum will close on June 1st,” the commissioners wrote in the statement. “This has caused much divisiveness and controversy in our county. As we continue to hear from concerned citizens, please know that we will continue to explore the facts more fully before giving our input on how to proceed to address this issue.”
The commissioners asked for citizen input, but only expressed “in a respectful manner.”
Comments across social media have been anything but civil since the Nash Farm Battlefield Museum closed its doors for good this week.
