    Does anyone here actually find General Lee's flag and the flying of it offensive?

    Mal, I'm not trying to be intentionally obtuse or provocative. I am trying to point out that the facts do not support a great deal of the mythology prevalent in understanding this subject. You can feel anything you want. I actually like and respect that you speak your mind. But facts are...

    The use of the term "War of Northern Aggression" was not used to describe the Civil War until the 1950's. Its use came about when segregationists were attempting to correlate the Federal government's imposing of Civil Rights to the Union's war against the Confederacy.

    Certainly, after the Civil War, southern succession and the Constitution were very difficult things to reconcile. I would argue that Texas v White in 1869 basically established that the Union was insoluble and therefore the Confederacy was in fact committing treason.

    Let's just stand back and actually look at where this flag originated: it comes from a place that supported the enslavement of black people in a time of armed insurrection undertaken to support that practice. It did not exist before the Civil War and has no particular tie to Southern culture...

    The flag in question has been appropriated by individuals to use as a symbol of their intolerance and bigotry, so yes, I find it offensive.
