Honor Our Veterans By Taking Down the Confederate Flag from the South Carolina State Capitol Now

June 20, 2015 § Leave a comment

The most urgent reasons to immediately take and keep down the Confederate flag from the South Carolina state capitol are to show respect for the nine African-American victims of what according to the Charleston police chief was a racially motivated hate crime and to support our grieving.

The next reason is to honor our veterans who fought an enemy displaying that flag.

In the words of one of our greatest generals and former Republican President Ulysses S. Grant, the cause the Confederate flag represents, “…was, I believe, one of the worst for which a people ever fought”.

Anson Croman (1844 – 1938), Company F, 20th Michigan Infantry Regiment, 1862 –1865.

The Musbachs and Robinsons are direct line descendants of Anson Croman and he is my 2nd great-grandfather-in-law.
