Correct, but they no longer fly the Nazi flag.

I personally have no problem with it unless they fly it as a "take that" to blacks out of the mistaken belief that that is what the Confederacy, and the American Civil War, was about.

the basic flag was still used in some cases for small markings, so it was still around here and there

I can see how he would be sensitive about the issue do to his race, but it comes from a misguided belief that slavery was what the war was fought over.

But, to be fair, it is a widely held belief here, most of the people in my Government class had no idea that the war wasn't about slavery, despite the fact that they had all gone through the same US History class with a teacher who explained it to them over the course of a month.

Not being funny or anything mate but war-gaming is mainly played by white middle-class types.
So I don't see how a war-gaming site would help you understand what most of us frankly don't give a shit about.

"Why do people still fly that blasted flag they got there ass kicked by the union get over it. I don't see that many around here in Connecticut ( up north) but when I do I kind of want to yell get your hill billy ass out of here."

If this is curious, I'd hate to see you angry.
