Two years after the Va Flaggers began their campaign to RETURN the flags and RESTORE the honor to the Confederate Memorial Chapel , officials at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) are STILL offering the same talking points that they released then, all of which have been completely debunked and refuted. As we have in several meetings with Museum officials, we offer the facts here, for your information...


VMFA: “confederate flags are displayed within the Chapel where their historical significance is interpreted by the Lee-Jackson Camp No. 1, Sons of Confederate Veterans.”

Va Flaggers: This is obviously a case of “selective” historical significance/accuracy, fabricated to justify the discriminatory act of removing the Confederate Battle Flags. How can you POSSIBLY have “historical significance” inside and “historical accuracy” outside if you claim that 74 years of a Confederate flag on the grounds and on the Confederate War Memorial DIDN’T happen, but green tin roofs, handicapped ramps, and manicured round brick flowerbeds DID?!?!

The photograph above clearly show that the flag pole on which the Confederate soldiers are hoisting the Confederate Battle Flag is the same pole that, until recently, sat on the Benedictine High School property. If the VMFA is truly interested in preserving historical accuracy, then the flag pole that was originally located on the grounds, and flew the Confederate Battle Flag daily, should be restored to its historically correct location on the grounds of Confederate Memorial Park.

VIRGINIA FLAGGERS CALL TO ACTION: Grab your rain gear and join the VA Flaggers TOMORROW afternoon, Tuesday, November 26th, 3:00 p.m. - Dusk, as we forward the colors and protest the removal of Confederate Battle Flags from the portico of the Confederate Memorial Chapel.

RETURN the flags!
RESTORE the honor!
