General Stonewall Jackson’s Flag Incinerated

"The ongoing terrorist attacks in Richmond claimed a priceless and irreplaceable artifact of Virginia History: General Stonewall Jackson’s flag that has been held in the United Daughters of the Confederacy Headquarters. It was incinerated. It’s gone. So too are many irreplaceable manuscripts.

They burned the books too.

Cowards.

During the riots, the building sustained heavy damage and many historical artifacts were lost. Although many of us watched the scene unfold on live TV and several videos and hundreds of photos are available, NO arrests have been made. 

Thankfully, armed volunteers have stood guard along side pair security since the attack, and the building remained secure during a third night of lawless rioting in the Capital of the Confederacy."

  1. Preposterous rumor. There was a fire in the basement of St. John's that was quickly put out.

  3. I can't believe this building wasn't guarded to begin with. They should have known it would be a target. I have seen more dropped balls this last week by all kinds of people I hate to see fumble. These cities are under assault and this shit needs to be crushed. If this was happening during the era of General Jackson this lawlessness would have been put down with extreme prejudice and count the corpses when it's done last week. That's how you do it. Protecting the law abiding tax payers. To hell with the criminals.
