Lexington Flag Ban

Posted by Brandon Dorsey on September 28, 2011 at 3:35 PM

On September 1, 2011, The Lexington City Council banned the display of Confederate flags for Lee-Jackson Day on city street poles.  The Stonewall Brigade has actively resisted the city's adoption of the flag ban ordinance including holding a flag rally just prior to the vote.  The camp has now established a heritage defense fund to raise money to take the city to court for violating our rights and the 1993 Injunction which forbid the city from taking actions to bar any display of the Confederate flag.  The 1993 Injunction was the result of the city attempting to keep participants from displaying Confederate flags at the 100th anniversary program for the Stonewall Jackson monument at the general's grave.

I am the JAG of the Orphan Brigade, 2166, Waldorf MD. Have you all thought of contacting Jay Seculow (that spelling does not look correct).............he heads the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ.org). That group defends groups that have been discriminated against. I first heard of his group through a Christian radio station.

Also, does your camp have a copy of Pastor John Weaver's commentary CD entitled: THE TRUTH CONCERNING THE CONFEDERATE BATTLE FLAG? That is available at: www.georgiascv.org and possibly www.scv.org. I think we figured that 100 copies, with shipping, cost the camp $40. Just been thinking that the liberal council members (at least) should receive copies of this CD.....or be approached with the facts. I am sure this ban and what it is taking to overturn it is disheartening. God be with you..........Eric Pfeiffer
