SCV and League of the South To Rally In Lexington

RobertLeeMonument

The Maryland/Virginia League of the South will be holding a protest in Lexington, VA this weekend on Saturday, July 26th, in response to the removal of the regimental Confederate battle flags from Lee Chapel at Washington and Lee University. The meeting will begin at the Jackson monument at 10:00 AM.

The SCV is also holding a rally:

“Washington and Lee University has desecrated Robert E. Lee’s grave, but can remedy its error by restoring the Confederate battle flags and separating the chapel from university politics, the commander of the local Sons of Confederate Veterans said.

The Lexington-based Stonewall Brigade plans Saturday to battle the removal of replica flags from Lee Chapel with a downtown flag vigil starting at noon. That will be followed by an open forum at 4 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Express to discuss how to respond to what it terms “grave robbery.” …”

Note: To my knowledge, the League is planning to use the Confederate Battle Flag at this protest.

  1. Removal of the Confederate flag at Lee Chapel is an act against the First Amendment of our Constitution.It should also be considered a hate crime.

  2. Good opportunity to get heritage types to join the League. Try not to get into any fights with the SCV, if y’all are going at the same time.

  3. I wish I was joking, but I suspect if it’s just the flags today, it’ll be his tomb later. And it will be renamed “Washington and Grant University.”

  4. I’m not even from the South, but this is a complete disgrace. It’s unconscionable. Those flags are of cultural and historical significance, at the very least, and it really is a tragedy.

  5. Where are the alumni in all this? I would think there would be a powerful influence for tradition there………….
