What is the history behind the confederate flag?
- ?Lv 64 years agoFavorite Answer
The one being discussed so much now was one of several flags used for various purposes by a treasonous rebellion against the United States in the 1860s. The rebels wanted to preserve the institution of slavery.
After the slaveholding traitors lost the war against the U.S., the flag was used by many racist terrorist groups who murdered, raped, and intimidated black Americans. Most recently it was used by the terrorist who shot 9 people in the church in Charleston.
