Stan Stones, a Baptist minister, said he came to defend the flag but made clear that he does not support the KKK or their beliefs. The KKK "hijacked it in the mid-1950s, and they made it a symbol of hate. And Southern heritage has nothing to do with hate — it has to do with honoring those who fought," he said.
"I’ll use the words of Jefferson Davis: ‘We just want to be left alone,’” Charles Kelly Barrow said on Wednesday, quoting the man who served as the president of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War of 1861-65.
Barrow and about 1,000 members of his organization were in Richmond, Virginia, this week for the 120th national reunion of the SCV, formed in 1896 and open to male descendants of Confederate soldiers. Richmond is the former capital city of the Confederacy.

Based upon media reports, it is obvious that you received my letter, dated June 29, requesting that the local government remove the Confederate statues located in downtown Macon to a museum or perhaps Rose Hill Cemetery, where the burial ground is dedicated to and populated by the fallen from Macon who fought in the Civil War. It is my understanding, based on media reports, that your refusal to consider such requests is based upon your belief that these statues and monuments pay tribute to the bravery and patriotism of those who died while fighting to divide our country and maintain an economic system based upon the free labor of enslaved Africans and their descendants.

THE Civil War was not about SLAVERY! As proof of this one only has to look at the facts that Lincoln attempted to author his version of the 13th amendment which proposed that “No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give Congress the power to abolish or interfere within any state with the domestic institutions thereof, including that a person's held to labor or service by laws of said State.” Thus, why would the Southern States, South Carolina included, wish to secede from the Union over slavery? The only thing the South had to do was accept Lincoln’s 13th Amendment which would have guaranteed the continuation of slavery! Hence, why would the South go to war over slavery when Lincoln was in full support of continuing slavery? To further support the issue, one can be find in the resolution passed with overwhelming support by the U.S. Congress of July 23, 1861, “The War is waged by the government of the United States not in the spirit of conquest or subjugation, nor for the purpose of overthrowing or interfering with the rights or institutions of the states, but to defend and protect the Union.” So, who is right? Is the US Congress declaration of war against the South in an attempt to force them not to secede from this federal tyranny as shown through numerous documents, or was it about slavery despite saying actually the opposite? Can you tell me of one, just one, ship that flew a Confederate Flag and was used to transport slaves? That’s right you won’t find one! However, you will find that many of these ships flew the: British Flag, Dutch Flag, Spanish Flag, Portuguese Flag and even our wonderful United States government Flag.
Now let us look at the history and facts of slavery and the Confederate Flag. Lincoln launched his war to force the South to submit to the same taxation from the Federalists, as that of which the original 13 colonies fought to free themselves from the British rule. Next is the fact that not only had the slave trade to the New World ended in 1808; there was only a small fraction of Southerners who even owned slaves. However, since the Board of Educations’ inception, the United States history has been re-written numerous times and indoctrinated on the masses over decades to believe the Civil War was about SLAVERY. The truth is the North, “THE FEDEREALISTS”, feared the South and their right to secede, as the North could not retain POWER without the taxes being forced on the South. Saying the South did not have the right to secede from the corruption and tyranny they saw playing out by the leaders in the Northern states is like saying that America did not have the right to secede from the British due to their government tyranny and taxation on the colonies! Lincoln in truth was a DUMB patsy for the rich elites, and when they found out that Lincoln was finally going to take a stand against them and their corrupt and illegal establishment of a system to continue taxing the Americas for the British ruling class, was when he was assassinated. Immediately following his execution the British ruling class finally attained their goal with the establishment of Washington DC and the illegal US CORPORATION of 1871. Don’t take my word on it, research the Act of 1871. The civil war accomplished the agenda of the British ruling class to continue their ability to tax the American people to this given day! Yes, ever since we have continued to pay taxes to the British ruling elites. By these greedy, corrupt, and sick individuals who have never seen human beings as nothing more than “chattel to be bought, sold, and killed (culled) at their enjoyment!! If you don’t believe me research it! Queen Beatrice was even found calling a majority of the population as “useless eaters” and even was quoted as stating that it was almost time for the “GREAT CULLIING” to begin.
