MAubrecht,

Thank you, after more thought I feel "use" is not strong enough, I would change it to "abuse" of the battle flag.

Uylsses,

I am doing a little research and will answer you shortly. I think I have not made my point clear to you. I am speaking only of the modern movement to ban the flag from public display ie: state capitol buildings, public buildings, state flags, and state licence plates to name a few. I do not debate that valid protest have been made for 140 years to ban hate groups from using it. As to the return of captured battle flags I believe the veterens of the North protest because they felt these were spoils of war got by the blood of fallen comrades. This is one thing I am trying to find where I read it several years ago.

Thank you both for your replies.

John
