Is a Dialogue Possible With the SCV’s New Chief of Heritage Operations?

Brooks Simpson is optimistic that a dialogue is possible with the SCV’s new chief of heritage operations. I fully support whatever extent Brooks and Mr. Jones are able to engage in a civil conversation about those issues related to Civil War memory that continue to divide Americans. That said, I think it is safe to […]

Rethinking Lincoln and Colonization

This past week Brooks Simpson posted an interesting item concerning a dispute between Allen Guelzo and the authors of a new book about Lincoln and colonization. Philip W. Magness and Sebastian N. Page argue that Lincoln continued to push for the colonization of African Americans after January 1, 1863. I’ve known about their book for […]

And the Struggle Continues

Perhaps Tripp Lewis of the Virginia Flaggers is trying to get a head start on what will hopefully become an annual contest over at Brooks Simpson’s Crossroads blog of the best in Confederate Heritage Follies.  I give the VMFA’s security force a great deal of credit in how they handle Mr. Lewis. For the life […]

A Good Week for the SCV and Virginia Flaggers

Brooks Simpson is having some fun with what he has dubbed the 2013 Confederate Heritage Follies Countdown. Lord knows he’s got plenty of material to work with. I suspect that the SCV and/or Virginia Flaggers will crack the top five. I’ve been known to have a good laugh at the expense of both organizations, but […]

The Ohio State Marching Band Commemorates Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address

Brooks Simpson posted this video over the weekend, but it’s just too good not to do so here as well. I continue to be pleasantly surprised by where and how the Civil War 150th is being commemorated across the country. Enjoy.

Confederate Heritage Gone Wild

Both Andy Hall and Brooks Simpson have highlighted another instance of Confederate Heritage gone wild. It’s nothing new, whether we are discussing the latest Virginia Flagger fiasco or SCV misstep. I’ve been accused of highlighting heritage follies for the sake of blog stats and there is some truth to that. At the same time, however, […]

Virginia Flagger Antics Part ? (lost track)

Imagine my surprise when I learned after reading Brooks Simpson’s blog that the Virginia Flaggers are reporting a theft at their backwoods location for their Confederate flag off of I-95. No, the flag is still proudly flying, but the excavator that was being used to clear trees is now missing and assumed stolen. Virginia Flagger […]

Are the Virginia Flaggers A Threat To Confederate Heritage? (continued)

 Here is the second part of Patrick Young’s guest post on the Virginia Flaggers. Today Brooks Simpson explains Flagger founder Susan Hathaway’s silence. It’s a doozy. 4. Adding to the need for those who support the preservation of the chapel to reconsider the conflictive approach taken by the Virginia Flaggers is the inherent marginality of […]

A Quick Response to Brooks Simpson

I want to take a minute to respond to Brooks Simpson, who has apparently misinterpreted a recent post of mine in which I ask whether the Civil War Sesquicentennial is over.
