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.
“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.” …”
