Another Confederate Flag on the Interstate
The Lee-Moses-Dixon Vindicator Camp of Mobile, Alabama in co-operation with the Dabney H. Maury Camp of Grand Bay, Alabama has erected a Confederate Battle flag along the side of I-10, just west of Mobile. The flag pole stands eighty feet high and is built to withstand the winds of a hurricane. Below the flag is two light poles with two 2,000 watt halogen lights. Nearby the flag pole is an old family cemetery where two Confederate veterans are buried. The site where the flag pole is positioned will attract the estimated attention of over 2,160,000 people per month. It will be visible for over one mile in both directions. Currently, atop the pole is a 3 X 5 flag similar to one carried by the greatest army that ever walked the North American continent. It was the army of a Christian Nation. It is to be replaced by a 12 X 18 foot flag and then the ultimate goal is to place a 20 X 30 flag on the pole. The Commander of the Lee- Moses-Dixon Camp says that this project is a moument to truth. A truth that as President Jefferson Davis said; “if crushed to the earth will rise again.” We salute you President Davis, in the 200th anniversary of your birth! It is a monument to the courage and honor of the Southern soldier. The pole is a reminder that in a free country, the speech, heritage and culture of all deserves equal protection. It will stand as testimony to the fact that millions of Southern Americans remain proud of their ancestors, who as R. E. Lee said, fought invaders to keep the constitution and the country that was inherited by them from their fathers. This project is a reminder to cultural bigots who deserve no individual recognition here, that their efforts to dimis, disparage, and otherwise erase our heritage will only fuel a fire in Southern Hearts. This fire will result in more of these projects, some of which are already in the works. And finally, this project is given to Southern people as a challenge. We challenge every camp in the SCV to erect a similar pole, and will be happy to give details of how this can be done for surprisingly small expenditures. We will officially dedicate the flag on General Robert E. Lee’s 201st birthday, Saturday, January 19, 2008.
