[No, if you are the first to ID the flag as being a unknown South Carolina flag, then you would have been around in 1919. ]
Perhaps, you should read what I wrote, again. My issue was the fact that the "discovery" in this century of the flag was attributed to a Citadel alumnus. That is false. As you had no problem pointing out what you viewed as inaccuracies in the article, I don't know WHAT your problem was with me doing the same.
[I don’t know who you are, don’t really care but I thought you had something to contribute beyond name calling. Your hiding behind a alas. Yes, I know who I am.]
I am not hiding behind an alias, I used my sign-in name for this forum. Not that you deserve an answer, but I will give you one. I am a female and have been stalked via public forums. I'm not giving out my name. Jim knows my name - that is all that is required for this website.
[A finial word is not in as of yet. Hopefully with some constructive debate we can finally find the answers. Calling me as naysaying, is a little prepubescent isn’t it?]
I wouldn't say my calling you a naysayer as being prepubescent, I will say I think your initial comments to me were.
[I have about 20 years of flag research, its called Vexillology. I have studied the O.R. Reports from the War of Northern Aggression, plus other wars, battle reports, maps and other peoples research regarding this flag and others, etc. etc.. I have contacts with archives and fellow vexillologist in the States and several countries around the world. I have data on over 50,000 flags, mostly dealing with the armed forces of the States of the United States. I have a large palmetto flag file and made about 50 replicas for re enactors & museums, based on solid research.]
I am sure you know much more about Civil War flags than I. But that still does not give you the right to make smart alecky comments to me, when I took exception to an article about a flag that I know a lot about.
[Ask momma to put your big boy britches on so we can move forward and get a ID on this flag. By the way I am extremely cute, thanks for your observation. ]
Now, who is being prepubescent?
[P.S. Jim, Please don’t delete this thread I’m interested to see if saa will answer some of his or hers own questions on his or her ID and background. If you find it prudent to do so saa can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org I’m interested in his research findings if he/she has any. ]
Yes, Jim, I agree. I would hate for his initial comments to me, which I still maintain were totally uncalled for, particularly since I had addressed NOTHING to him.
As far as contacting you, I made initial contacts and now find that any contributions have been attributed to someone else. With you "attitude", I would doubt you would be any different from the other boys in their "big boys britches".
