In the past year, our monuments and memorials have become the new targets of dogmatic, left-wing activists who have now moved on from their attacks on Confederate flags. These activists not only wish to erase Confederate heritage or consign it to obscure museums, but also to eliminate all the symbols of American history that they find politically incorrect.
They do not stop with our monuments and flags, but have already begun efforts across the nation to remove symbols honoring historical figures like Washington, Jefferson and Columbus, to alter longstanding names of schools, and even to banish the National Anthem.
The North Carolina Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans, officially began the “Flags Across the Carolinas” program in 2015 as a response to increased efforts to eradicate Confederate symbols in North Carolina and across the nation. The program operates in a manner by which private property owners donate, sell, or lease land to the Division, and Confederate flags of various sizes are erected and flown.
