A Younger Look on an Old Symbol!

The book provides a younger readers' prospective on the birth, fall and often nowadays resurrected look at the controversial symbol know as the Confederate flag. It provides keywords, names and asks questions. It even threw in a few names that I myself have never heard of and I've studying the Civil War since I was a kid. But it's an interesting read nonetheless.

Actual History of the Confederate Flag

The book was well written and easy to understand. It still leaves it up to the individual as to how the person feels about the flag. Facts were given for individual interpretation today.
