Almost since the moment that the City Council of Danville voted to remove the Third National flag from the Confederate Memorial on the grounds of the Sutherlin Mansion, the Last Capitol of the Confederacy, the citizens of Danville began to push back in a BIG way.As we reported earlier, we have received dozens of calls from folks looking to install Memorial Battle Flags, financial support from citizens for the projects, and many volunteers on the ground have stepped up to assist. Two flags are already installed and flying, and several more will rise before the end of the month.
Danville Memorial Battle Flag #2 - Westover:Last week, a lawsuit was filed:

My clients have attempted for nearly ten months now to bring a resolution to this matter, only to be broadsided by the City Council’s decision to breach its 1994 agreement with the Heritage Preservation Association, and ultimately violate Virginia’s laws protecting war memorials. We are disappointed that it has come to litigation, but if that is the only thing the City of Danville understands, then my clients will absolutely protect their and the community’s interests in this memorial."

Counsel for the Plaintiffs
Kaine says it is the first time he has ever had an appearance canceled because of a scheduled protest. We hope it won't be the last, and that scalwag and carpetbagger politicians across the South will begin to feel the pressure of cold Southern steel as more and more citizens stand up and speak out.
Dixie is rising...join the fight!
