Obama Administration Nixes Confederate Flag at Cemeteries

The Confederate flag symbolizes a time when American was split into two sides during a dreadful time of civil war and slavery. As a nation, equality among its people is paramount.

A lot of people in the South still have ill will towards those in the North, so for them, the banning of the Confederate flag at cemeteries is a big deal.

The vote was 265-159 in favor of banning the Confederate flag at certain cemeteries. Descendants of the Confederate States of America and all others may no longer commemorate veterans of the Confederate States of America by flying the Confederate battle flag, and this includes days when flag displays are permitted. For some families, this is heartbreaking considering it takes away from celebrating the cause their ancestors once fought for.
