    Yes it was. From late 61 to the end of the war. By the army of Nothern Virginia.

    Does it matter?

    I believe that it was the battle flag of Robert E. Lee of what they called Northern Virginia.

    But, I guess that is the country that we live in.
    So inanimate objects do not influence, effect, impact or play any role in the actions of people?

    I'm 53. And I live in New England now, I'm not from here. Does one have to live in the area being discussed in order to have an opinion? If that's the case, then everyone needs to stop talking about slavery and the Civil War, considering none of us "remember" that time, either.

    Or you could go back in time and convince the Dixiecrats to use some other symbol for their segregationist banner of race hatred, that would be a start. Don't just stand there.... get moving. Find a Delorean or something.

    Ok, they could just use this one....ht_democratic_logo_dr_110221_mn.jpg

    to stick a bunch of Japanese folks in interment camps.
    Interning Japanese-Americans during WWII was a very bad thing. At least we fed them.

    The Union POWs were not fed during the Civil War. There are some photos that don't get shared very often for the obvious reason that you will understand if you ever get to see them. Grown men weighing less than 70 pounds, and dying slow, are not very attractive.

    True, the Great Confederacy didn't even have enough food for their own troops. But to take prisoners and deliberately starve them to death is very similar to what the liberated Jews looked like when they were released from the death camps.

    This soldier wants me to piss on your Confederate flag:

    Inaminate objects obviously influence people. However that fact does not lead directly to a battle flag causing someone shooting up a church.

    It's more likely that this kids mental state influenced his politics rather than his politics leading to his craziness.

    The union also had its share of bad POW camps.

    Check out Camp Douglas.

    The importance of that flag to Root was obvious and meant something to him as it played a major role in the pictures he posted and wanted others to see.

    We disagree about his mental state and politics. I am of the opinion that some crazy people embrace extremist politics because they are crazy. Other people embrace extremist politics and become residents in a reality other than the one the rest of us live in and live in a delusion of their own making and that is what makes them mental ill.

    I imagine it would take a professional and a good deal of time and study to find out which is which.
