    The Signs designating they are a U.S. National Park or Memorial, etc, along with its name, symbolizes who is in control. There is no need for an expensive and tall flag pole.

    In fact.... National Parks are not essential to government either....Nor are war memorials or national cemetaries....

    How far do you want to go with this ignorance?

    So.... remove it over state maintained confederate burial grounds and memorials?

    Why do you need a seceding flag on top of such sensitive US wounds?

    Because it was the flag the soldiers within or being memorialized died under.....

    Is France wrong to have memorials to U.S. Soldiers who died in France with a U.S. Flag Flying above it?

    I will admit I was ignorant about the flag being on a memorial that is to educate people about the civil war. Thus I will not defend my argument with you any further. The people whom I talked to said it was the capitol building, not a memorial. I didn't look into the facts for myself. I digress.

    If so, how is the flag of secession help the people move on from those days?

    The issue is within USA, not between country arrangements.

    We have USA memories right in my city too. There's an Albanian flag in many parts within USA. But we indeed are different countries, the south and the north are not.

    When you get the story straight from the horse's mouth as my granddaddy did, I tend to find it quite believable

    Yeah he used to fly the Confederate flag at our house when he lived with us, and of course one of our crazy neighbors thought the Grand Imperial Wizard of the KKK lived there! Then again the minister at the Baptist church around the corner was a big history buff and he and my granddaddy would talk for HOURS about the war, and granddaddy would recall every story that his veteran friends had told him as a teenager. I heard all those stories a million times growing up
