Dear South Carolina,
As your legislators debate the Confederate flag issue, please take a moment to reflect.
You were settled in 1663 as the Carolina province.
You were one of 13 original colonies. We shared a flag.
From 1777, with these words…
“WHITE signifies purity and innocence,
RED, hardiness & valor,
BLUE, signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice.”
Soldiers from all 13 colonies died for independence; we were the United States.
Just a reminder.
Please do your research. Know your true history.
Take it down.
It is long past time.
“Old times there are not forgotten. Look away, look away, look away, Dixieland.” 1850
