Civil War Collectors Group
Very sad news to share. Last nights terrorist
attack in Richmond claimed a priceless and
irreplaceable artifact of Virginia History: General
Stonewall Jackson's flag that has been held in the
United Daughters of the Confederacy
Headquarters for a very long time. It was
incinerated. It's gone. So too are many
irreplaceable manuscripts. - nice

    • Well, no this is rather idiotic. The group is shitty, but that's still a part of history. Burn the modern flags being displayed by idiots, not historial artifacts, regardless of their context. Preservation is key to all history

    • Ehhhhhh I completely agree that tearing down statues is absolutely the right thing to do but this flag is historically significant and was in a collection, not on display like a public statue

    • I don't think history like that should be burned. I don't agree at all for what they stood for, or probably what it was being used for, but it should have been held somewhere as a reminder of what happened. Burning history Isn't going to help stop it or have us learn from it.

    • Statues of confederates should be torn down, those who still fly the confederate flag should go back and finish middle school, but artifacts in a museum should not be destroyed. History should be preserved not because we are proud of it, but because we need to be able to learn from it.
