The secret history of the Confederate Flag

What we know as the Confederate flag was actually never a flag of the Confederacy. Here's the history of a symbol that many are fighting to ban across the nation.

    😳🤔, I have a Question- Whenever the subject of the Confederate Flag Come Up, How come no one ever talk about the Black Soldiers who fought for the Confederate Army during the Civil War or the Thousands of Black Klansmen of the KU KLUX KLAN who were use as spies on other Black people and Northern Whites, read the book 📖 by one of my all time favorite authors- J.A Rodgers- THE SPIRIT OF THE KU KLUX ( 1920’s)

    I don't support that flag but it was no more of a disgrace to that building than some of the people that work there.

    Wow.... I guess you can lie about history on here too.... Wtf is wrong with everyone today? You still think the civil war was over slavery? Yet the south started to free slaves before the north.... Yet you still believe the government... They never lie to the public

    an integral part of my ancestry in which my ancestors fought because Fed gave them no other means to continue their livelihood without slavery.

    It was NOT Lynyrd Skynyrd’s idea to use the confederate Flag. It was the record companies idea! They kept it until it became an issue and Lynyrd Skynyrd was not having any part of it. They tossed the flag and changed to Whiskey barrels and a more of a biker theme!

    It's about the battle of the Confederate states of America who didn't want the north to take the resources from the south big money ,it's not a symbol of hate or slavery You make it that because you don't understand history,never forget the young men that died for there cause .

    So we are to believe there was a war over slavery before the govt ever did away with it. Since slavery was abolished in 1865, after the war. Even though Lincoln said the war wasnt over slavery. That the south could keep its slaves if they agreed to pay the increased taxes.

    Please let me be clear here, Slavery has been wrong for as long as as it has existed , long before the founding of the Nation . ... To say that the Confederate States of America fought to Keep slavery is to willfully disregard the Corwin Amendment ... Feb. 28 1861 the 36th House of Representatives approved Corwin’s proposed amendment by a vote of 133–65, just above the two-thirds threshold. The Senate took up the proposed amendment on March 2, 1861, passing it with exactly the two-thirds super majority needed: 24–12....( Please note the 66 house votes and the Senate votes of the states that would form the Confederate States of America are not apart of this vote ) Just before leaving office, President James Buchanan signed the amendment, unnecessarily, since the President has no constitutional role in approving amendments. Buchanan’s successor, Abraham Lincoln, who took office on March 4, sent the proposed amendment to the states for ratification..... Had the 7 states in Secession on April 12, 1861 rejoined the Union and the ratification would , by your view been assured and per the Corwin Amendment " No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give to Congress the power to abolish or interfere, within any state, with the domestic institutions thereof, including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State. " ... The demonization of The Confederate States of America and attempt to destroy the True History of the war, is the destruction of evidence of crimes against humanity. Union military Actions against non-combatants in the The Confederate States of America kill masses of people of many races, and the numbers of freed slaves that died in concentration camp confinement are well documented ! .... Remember it was the U.S. Congress that was protecting the right to hold ( persons held to labor or service by the laws ),,, The United States Census of 1860 you will find ( 15 / 33 states ) and the District of Columbia ( shows 3,185 ) counted slaves and wile states such as N.Y. show 0 slaves yet we know that indentured slaves from Europe were present , ( the so call white trash of Europe to be imprisoned or sold for taxes ), yet counted as hole for the House of Representatives ( how Darwinism ) ... A unconstitutional war against a sovereign nation. .. .. Please let us not insult one an others good intelligence ... learn the facts, teach the facts, for they are the facts.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/36th_United_States_Congress... ..... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1860_United_States_Census... .... https://prologue.blogs.archives.gov/.../unratified.../.

    Pay attention, most of the video footage shown here was of actual hate groups with the confederate, they have no business flying it and using it to promote hate, those are the uneducated and this is what the big media also uses to keep people divided against each other, the more history is erased the more the world becomes uneducated, media loves it! Media & Government are the true enemies.
