Will county fly Confederate flag?
Committee votes to allow it at courthouse
Confederate flagWEB
Sam Boyd has proposed flying a seven-star Confederate flag at the courthouse.
Warren County is considering a request to allow a Confederate flag to be placed at the courthouse. Sam Boyd made the application to county Building and Grounds Committee members Carl E. Bouldin, chair, Carolyn Miller, David Rhea, Kenny Roberts and Michael Shane Wilcher.“I beg of the members of the committee to remember that they were our family, neighbors, and loved their home,” said Boyd in his written request. “If we fail to remember and honor the symbols of our veterans of our past for only honorable purposes due to political calculations of ever-changing winds, think of how our sons and daughters today will be treated in the future for simply serving their home, despite the political platforms or policies debated in Washington in the future.
