SONS OF UNION VETERANS OF THE CIVIL WAR
LANSING, MICHIGAN AUGUST 19, 2000

A resolution in support of the display of the Confederate Battle Flag.

WHEREAS, we, the members of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, condemn the use of the confederate battle flag, as well as the flag of the United States, by any and all hate groups; and

WHEREAS, we, the members of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, support the flying of the Confederate battle flag as a historical piece of this nation's history; and

WHEREAS, we, the members of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, oppose the removal of any Confederate monuments or markers to those gallant soldiers in the former Confederate States, and strongly oppose the removal of ANY reminders of this nation's bloodiest war on the grounds of it being "politically correct;" and

WHEREAS, we, as the descendants of Union soldiers and sailors who as members of the Grand Army of the Republic met in joint reunions with the Confederate veterans under both flags in those bonds of Fraternal Friendship, pledge our support and admiration for those gallant soldiers and of their respective flags;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that we, the members of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War in 119th Annual National Encampment, hereby adopt this resolution.

Honorable descendants of Union soldiers proudly recognize the bravery and tenacity of their Confederate cousins and openly celebrate the bonds that today unite us in mutual respect and affection.

Their upright example stands as an enduring rebuke to the hollow men of the academy who preach regional animosity while furiously tilting at the ancient monuments and symbols better men have always sought to preserve.

Future generations can not learn from a past half of which has been concealed from them. Better to rely on the sons of our fallen soldiers to tend the sacred flame, the professors are unable to maintain a distinction between historical facts and their own contemporary leftist political delusions.

Well said RL.

"the professors are unable to maintain a distinction between historical facts and their own contemporary leftist political delusions."

Very true. This reveals their very shallow and juvenile perspective regarding history.

No surprise here; we're Americans.

"we're Americans."

You got that right partner - "all for the old flag."

Thanks for your support and comment!
