Due to a horrific shooting in South Carolina, Confederate flags are coming down across the South and there is a movement to have it removed from the South Carolina statehouse. Businesses such as Walmart, eBay, Target, Sears, Etsy, and Amazon have banned sales of the flag.
A friend just sent me a video that talks about the history of the Confederate flag. I learned much from watching it and thought some of you might also be interested in viewing it.
