For the SEVENTH year, the Va Flaggers will gather in Lexington for the Lee-Jackson holiday. Friday, January 18th is the Virginia State Holiday for Lee-Jackson Day, and Saturday, January 19th is officially recognized as Lee-Jackson Day in Lexington. The Virginia Flaggers will flag the town of Lexington for action taken by City Council to ban ALL flags from city light pole flag stands, rather than allow the flags of Lee and Jackson to fly for the week leading up to the State holiday, AND Washington and Lee University for actions taken by former President Ruscio to desecrate the LEE Chapel by removing battle flags from the Lee Mausoleum and refuse to allow the SCV to hold a Memorial Service in the LEE Chapel, and actions by the current administration to rename buildings and remove portraits of Lee and Jackson in uniform...all in response to the demands of 6 agitators/students.
Join us, as we "take it to the streets" to let the folks in Lexington and Washington & Lee University know that there are still many of us who honor Lee and Jackson and will not go away quietly.
We will flag all day Friday, participate in memorial service at Stonewall Jackson Cemetery and parade on Saturday, and flag Saturday afternoon/evening. We welcome all those interested in standing with us to attend Friday, Saturday, or both days.
Meet at Stonewall Jackson Cemetery Friday at 10:00 a.m, Saturday at 9:00 a.m. for instructions and information.
The Va Flaggers call for a TOTAL BOYCOTT of Lexington, Va and ask that participants take great effort and not spend ANY MONEY inside the city limits.
