Less than 48 hours after the illegal, dead of night removal of the Chatham County Confederate Monument in Pittsboro, North Carolina, crews erected TWO new flag poles in Pittsboro, and raised TWO new battle flags in response to the dark of night destruction of the memorial which had stood for more than 100 years.

These new flag sites, erected through a joint effort of the Old North State Flaggers, concerned Chatham County citizens, and the Va Flaggers, bring the number of Memorial Battle Flags raised to SIX since the Chatham County Board of Commissioners announced their intentions to remove the monument a few months ago, and come on the heels of a new poll by Elan University, which reported that an overwhelming majority of North Carolina Citizens want Confederate memorials to remain in place.

Although the monument has been removed, the fight is far from over. The legal battle to have it returned continued, and contingency plans for alternate placement are also underway.

In the meantime, we are exploring several other additional flag sites In Pittsboro, as frustrated citizens continue to contact us to offer their land for Battle Flag Memorials. It appears the good folks in Chatham County want to give Danville, Va some competition for their title as "Confederate flag Capital of the South". We welcome the competition.

Many thanks to each of you whose continued and generous support make these projects possible and help us to fulfill our promise...for every flag or monument removed, thousands more will rise to take their place.
