What part of that do you fail to understand ?


  1. It may not be the flag of the confederacy, but it was incorporated into the last two flags of the confederacy

    1. OK I know I'm running the risk of giving you a cyber soapbox, But what is your point?

  2. Well you claim that the rebel battle flag is only a soldiers flag, but it was incorporated into the National flag of the it is not really just a soldiers flag.

    1. The Government incorporated the battle flag into it's design, not the other way around.

  3. Yes, therefore making the Battle flag more than just the battle flag.

  4. Corey you can put it any way you wish to, but it's two separate flags !

    And just in case you missed it at my other post.

    OK I’m gonna go out on a limb here and guess you meant to say---

    “Not very good history or as a source if you have to read between the lines”

    That’s where the problem lies, As a bean counting historian you deal with hard facts and numbers you have no heart in the issue. Looking at it from my perspective “with heart in the matter” it allows me to see beyond what you see.

    The first two paragraphs in the chapter are written from the heart – and sometimes the heart can make you see things that are not there. However in the subsequent paragraphs the facts are clearly presented.

    Are you familiar with the term “Prose”? = writing or speech in its normal continuous form, without the rhythmic or visual line structure of poetry.

    The first two paragraphs are Prose, written from the heart so the factual evidence is clouded.
    However, Carlton does clarify the facts surrounding the birth of the Battle Flag further on in the chapter.

    So he is not trying to deceive anyone in the first two paragraphs.

    So that’s what I meant by reading between the lines.I feel sorry for you, you have such a limited field of vision when it comes to history, but then again you have no "Heart" in the matter so I should expect nothing else from you !
