Looks great. What’s your secret for aging?

This is a very nice looking rustic flag. This technique should work on a great many different flags where a rustic style would be appropriate. Nice work.

No secrets here. Made out of old tobacco sticks and painted with watered down paint

It’s the flag that became popular during the fight against civil rights for African Americans. That’s when it began to fly.

I’m sure there are lots of our fellow Americans who happen to have to have black skin that frequent this website that don’t appreciate this stuff.

It’s part of our history, keep your racist remarks to yourself.

Nice try. The flag represents racism. You can call it “history” if you want, but you ain’t kidding anybody.

Make a flag that represents all Americans instead of one that celebrates one group of Americans trying to screw over another group because of skin color.

I don’t know why anyone would be eager to embrace a symbol of bigotry.

You object to his woodworking and I object to your racist remarks. If you don’t believe that flag is part of American history, you are very welcome to leave America! MHO

:) I was waiting. I knew some folks could not resist their need to display their ignorance.

Heritage, not hate. I’m a proud Southerner. Guess what? The Civil War was not fought over slavery. I’m sure heads are exploding right now. Do your homework. I’m right.

I know you are, but so many ignorant people in this world can’t see beyond their nose.

I forgot to mention that it’s a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. Chad should be very proud.

re: the causes of the Civil War: nope. Colonel Ty Seidule, Professor of History at West Point:

View on YouTube

It was specifically stated in secession documents in each state, and here’s a quote from Andrew Stevens, the vice-president of the Confederacy:
“Our new government was founded on slavery. Its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the Negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, submission to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition.”

The 1st Amendment protects the display of the battle flag, however odious that is to me. That’s your moral call. But the Civil War was absolutely about slavery.

Like I said, Chad’s craftsmanship is superior. This site is about woodworking, right?

It sure is. But if you post something that is just as hateful as a swastika you are going to get called out.

Sorry, I guess I missed the swastika. That would be wrong, since it is a symbol of hate.
