To some, the union flag represents racism and oppression. The stars and bars was the flag of a confederation of states which believed it had a better idea on how to do things that concerned them. Yes, there have been groups with racist beliefs that have adopted the stars and bars as their symbol. Does that mean the flag itself suggests racism? No.

All this noise from politicians about what this flag represents and what that flag represents is just that--noise. Each of us have our own beliefs of what the flag--which ever flag it is--represents.

Should the stars and bars be allowed to fly during a reenactment? Absolutely. It is a representation of an historical period. To suggest otherwise displays an ignorance of history.
