Removing the flag is good, but solid honest history education is still lacking.

Until there is honest education regarding American history in public schools, this issue will always be a thorn in the side of this country as a whole.

In America as in most European nations with a slavery past there is a tendency to gloss over shameful parts of history or ignoring it altogether.

Doug was good, thanks for sharing.

As far as historical education for our schools, and for the public in general; I couldn't agree with you more. We learn about the flag from the 1865 accounts of the one that carried it in battle, Gen. Robert E. Lee:



Letter | Confederate hero General Lee said furl the flag. That’s beginning to happen again.





... Riding “Traveller,” Lee was some miles from Lexington when an ex-Confederate stepped from his fenced yard to pay his respects to the general. At the corner of the fence a weathered battle flag drooped from a pole. The man seemed forlorn. He asked Lee what they were supposed to do in the wake of such devastation.

Lee looked at the flag and said: “First we take down that flag.” Then he turned Traveller toward Lexington and rode on.

In the years he was president of Washington College (which I learned only recently from Jonathan Horn's article entitled, “Even Lee Wanted the Flag Gone”), Lee directed that no Confederate flag or monument be displayed lest, as Lee said, the “sores of war” be kept open.
