Much has been made about statues being destroyed and the Confederate Flag being hijacked by people with less than ideal aims. Joel and I invited

Barry Isenhour. He is a member of the Virginia Flaggers. Their web site begins:

We are citizens of the Commonwealth who stand AGAINST those who would desecrate our Confederate Monuments and memorials, and FOR our Confederate Veterans.
The Virginia Flaggers were organized on September 5, 2011. What began with just a few dedicated Southerners, has now grown to include hundreds of people, from all over the country, who have joined us in defending the honor of the Confederate Veteran, protesting Heritage violations, and forwarding the colors in Richmond, and Virginia… and beyond!
