A Henry County commissioner requested a few months ago that a local Civil War museum remove its Confederate flags.
But without that symbol, the Nash Farm Battlefield and Museum announced that it can’t conduct its mission properly and will close June 1.
In a Facebook post, the museum’s directors cited the request by District 2 Commissioner Dee Clemmons that all Confederate flags be removed from the museum, in addition to the gift shop, “in an effort not to offend anyone.”
The action comes as sentiment against the public display of the Confederate flag is causing similar changes elsewhere in the South. New Orleans recently removed four monuments to Confederate leaders.
But the change in Henry County was not received well by some residents.
“You have a museum in this time period to honor both Union and Confederate veterans,” Chuck Johnson said. “No matter which side they fought on, they were all Americans.”

So what happens to Gettysburg PA? There is a whole cemetery with confederate soldiers graves.
What will hapoen to Arlington National Cemetery.. Gen. Lee's property is such.🤔
I'm ok with learning from our past.
But it might serve worthy if we knew what that past was.

Have you ever seen the inner working of a city? The request was more than likely not a request. (my guess)
