First off, I apologize for the lack of posts. February was a busy month due to my school’s basketball schedule and it is about to be a busy March once baseball starts. I have become the voice of my schools sports teams since I began doing the scoreboard a couple of years ago. So during February I would work a regular school day then wait three or four hours for the games to begin and then do a JV and Varsity game only to head home around 9pm. Since I live about 45 miles from work it would be a very late night and proved to kill my creative juices when it came to posting here. So again I apologize for the lack of post.
I did want to take a quick moment to comment on the opening of the new multi-million dollar Appomattox site - Museum of the Confederacy later this month and the hate that the Lost Causers are spewing towards those who run the museum due to to the fact that a Confederate flag will NOT fly outside of the new museum building. Kevin at Civil War Memory has ventured a guess as to why the MOC is not going to fly the rebel flag…and I agree with his comments. Brooks Simpson has also asked if the MOC should fly the flag…but which flag?
I think the Lost Causers have dealt themselves their worst blow to their own cause…and that was taking up the cause to begin with. As you can see from the picture above, people are not concerned with the history that will be preserved by this new museum or what the mission of the MOC is, but with how people view the history of the war and whether or not one is “SCV”…since when does the head of the MOC have to be “SCV”? I don’t know why I try to understand these people.
