Description - The Confederate Battle Flag by John M. Coski
Intense public debates have erupted over Confederate flags flying atop state capitals, being incorporated into state flags, waving from dormitory windows, or adorning the T-shirts and jeans of public school children. To some, this piece of cloth is a symbol of white supremacy and enduring racial injustice; to others, it represents a rich Southern heritage and an essential link to a glorious past. Polarizing Americans, these 'flag wars' reveal the profound - and still unhealed - schisms that have plagued the country since the Civil War.
