Summary
A comprehensive history of the Confederate flag that transcends conventional partisanship reveals the flag's origins and pursues its conflicting meanings. Reprint.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: THIS PRODUCT IS A BOOK.
Pursuing the flag's conflicting meanings, Coski suggests how this provocative artifact, which has been viewed with pride, fear, anger, nostalgia, and disgust, might ultimately provide Americans with the common ground of a shared and complex history. He reveals the flag's origins as one of many banners unfurled on the battlefields of the Civil War and shows how it emerged as the preeminent representation of the Confederacy and was transformed into a cultural icon from Reconstruction on, becoming an aggressively racist symbol only after World War II and during the Civil Rights movement.
