SPECIAL REPORT -- The Richmond Flaggers and the Vandalism Incident
NOTE: Although the pages of this website, a companion to my Bac ksass blog, are still being prepared, I have decided to do a preliminary page on the incident identified above, with regard to the extreme smearing of the Virginia Flaggers and the attempted character assassination of Susan Frise Hathaway by various anti-Confederate bloggers (known to heritage folks  "floggers" -- i.e., flogging bloggers), starting with the timeline below. It is currently posted without commentary, but commentary will be added later. When my Backsass website is complete and uploaded, I will migrate this special report to the finished site.
