The issues raised by this controversy revolves around the use of this flag by the KKK and other White Power and Nazi racist groups, although generally the matter is one that this flag symbolises a pro – slavery South, the spirit of which equates with an “Old South” now rejected by many in favour of what many determine as a “New South”. Supporters of the “Confederate Flag” and of what they see as “Old Southern Heritage”, particularly respectful remembrance of Confederate dead argue otherwise and have in the past organised massive Pro – Confederate Flag Campaigns and Rallies. All this has led to major confrontations on the WWW with a number of very interesting and illuminating web sites on this subject and all its many arguments for and against. These campaigns also have extended to “Car Flag Tag” campaigns (The U.S. Army forbids use of Confederate Flags as do most educational establishments). Now the issue revolves around Federal government demands that any claim for grants and subsidies by Civil War Heritage Interpretation Centre will only be available if hence the issue of slavery is introduced in heritage interpretations, in past left out as attempt to heal civil war wounds between the North and South.
