The principal at a Fayette County middle school has banned all clothing with the confederate flag emblem...

They lived in roughly the center part of the state, which was not particularly Brownlow country. My ancestor was almost 80 when the war started. Too old to fight in it.
His father had fought for the Americans at King's Mountain. According to his father's obituary, the father had accompanied Daniel Boone on some of his exploration trips though I've never been able to verify that. If I look back far enough in my family tree, I'll probably find Natty Bumppo.

otoh, do you have evidence that the CG was NOT in service (under one of it's SEVERAL names), inasmuch as the USCG itself CLAIMS service in the AMERICAN REVOLUTION????
one wonders what your claim to fame here on FR will be???? (perhaps posting apologist nonsense & meaningless bilge for the unionist propaganda machine????)
so far i have seen anything from you that required either KNOWLEGE and/or THOUGHT.
I could take you more seriously if you actually knew what you were talking about. The flag in question is not the Confederate States of America Flag - it is the Confederate Battle Flag. I for one will always hold it in high regard out of respect for the brave men who fought under it for what they believed in. I also hold the flags of many other military groups in high regard for the same reason. For example the Flag of the French Foreign Legion - most of those men fought for their brothers - not for France which is ok with me. There is nothing more honorable than fighting for your brothers in arms. It is what holds the US Marine Corps together, for one.
Right on!!! You nailed it - Thanks.
i suspect you'll get a FAT LIP.(fwiw, most FReepers are well aware of the BRAVE & HONORABLE service in wartime & peacetime of the "coasties", who "guarded" every coast from NY to SIAGON & BEYOND!)
it's like your famous & DUMB comment that the over 100,000 FREE Blacks, who fought for dixie LIBERTY,were NOT real soldiers/sailors/marines, because ALL of them were not front-line infantry troops. (btw,did you get around to telling all the mechanics, corpsmen, truck drivers, artillerymen, etc, in the current military that they were NOT "real" soldiers/sailors/marines????)
MOST FReepers are laughing AT your DUMB opinions, EVASIONS, half-truths, LIES & PHONEY-BALONEY comments in support of "the FILTH that flowed down from the north" (AND at the fact that you seem to believe that ANYBODY on FR believes your DAMNyankee/REVISIONIST/south-HATING APOLOGIST NONSENSE any more.)
fwiw, the southerners here are PLEASED, as it shows all the other FReepers what a bunch of brain-DEAD, arrogant, ignorant, CREEPS the DAMNyankee HATERS of the "coven" demonstrably are!
PLEASE keep posting your hate-FILLED, BIGOTRY & NONSENSE!
as far as i can see,the only problem with your post is that you seem to believe that the HATE-filled, DUMB comments of the "DAMNyankee coven of lunatics,dunces, REVISIONISTS, fools & at least ONE racist" are a result of being half-educated or IGNORANT.
RATHER the problem of the "coven's members-in-goodstanding" is that they are south-HATERS & BIGOTS.
I call them as I see em Stand, and your side has more than it's share of ignoramuses and backwards thinking cowards.
on the whole, the most BIGOTED, most ANTI-Semetic, most PREJUDICED & least EDUCATED area of the nation is the LEFTISTS of the northeast & "left coast".
AFTER you've removed the LOG from all the LEFTIST, socialist,DAMNyankees eyes, you can then worry about the splinters in southerners eyes, without looking like either a DUNCE or a HYPOCRYTE!
According to the website of the U.S. Coast Guard Historian's Office
The United States Coast Guard, one of the country's five armed services, is also one of the most unique agencies of the federal government. We trace our history back to 4 August 1790, when the first Congress authorized the construction of ten vessels to enforce tariff and trade laws, prevent smuggling, and protect the collection of the federal revenue. Known variously as the Revenue Marine and the Revenue Cutter Service, we expanded in size and responsibilities as the nation grewI can find nothing from the USCG that claims service during the Revolutionary War other than your unsupported assertion.
neither do i have time to go look for any.)
Your seem to have plenty of time for composing these tirades. Maybe that time could be put to better use doing a bit of research to support your positions.
Dude are you sure your read my post correctly. There is NO hate in my post and I don't buy any "DAMNyankee" propaganda. WTF???
Stand is the master of the unsupported claim. Ask him about the German U-Boat in Galveston sometime. Or that stirring epic "Yachts against Subs". Or how the state of Texas commissioned privateers during the Second World War. You can learn a lot from stand watie. Almost none of it factual, unfortunately.
and as for taking time to go do a bunch of research for a person whom i suspect wouldn't accept it as TRUTH, REGARDLESS of the SOURCE (the "DAMNyankee coven" members accept NO SOURCE that doesn't agree with their PREJUDICES!), i just CHOOSE not to take what little time i do have in a fruitless attempt to convince the UN-educatable!
fwiw, N-S is well-known by ALL here as nothing more or less than FR's very own PROPAGANDIST for the LEFT.
believe ANYTHING he posts, absent INDEPENDENT PROOF, at your peril. (i've known & dealt with him for YEARS!)
you HOPED everyone would forget the EGG (enough to make an OMLET!) you got on your face over that, didn't you???
i still CHUCKLE at you DAMNyankees DISCOMFORT when you DYs were proved not only WRONG, but it was demonstrated that "the nameLESS shunned one" had KNOWINGLY LIED TO you & "your team" about it! (and then the WHOLE THREAD "magically disappeared" didn't it??? SURPRISE! SURPRISE! could it be that the EMBARRASSED DY coven members DEMANDED that it be "pulled"??? LAUGHING AT the coven!)
a copy of the (supposedly nonexistent) BOOK was posted "for sale" on the www. (and i laughed AT you DY-lunatics for DAYS!)
Hmm. Who to believe? You telling me what someone told you, with no independent collaboration, or a host of information, including the USCG Historian's Office? Hard to decide what's more credible.
(the "DAMNyankee coven" members accept NO SOURCE that doesn't agree with their PREJUDICES!)
I'd at least look at any source. But you provide none at all, while I show the USCG Historian's Office.
History of Coast Guard Day
August 4 is celebrated as Coast Guard Day to honor the establishment on that day in 1790 of the Revenue Cutter Service, forebear of today's Coast Guard, by the Treasury Department. On that date, Congress, guided by Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton, authorized the building of a fleet of ten cutters, whose responsibility would be enforcement of the first tariff laws enacted by Congress under the Constitution.
So let's see where we are. On one hand, the USCG Historian and the Defense Department. On the other hand, you telling me what someone allegedly told you. Then there's Fox News, The National Archives, and a FReeper Canteen thread that you yourself posted on.
And if the South had won we'd be two countries. SO Say YOU ARE GLAD THE UNION WON.
Yes indeed. If memory serves the late, and lamented, Heyworth dug up the fact that it was a magazine called "Motorboating and Sailing" from 1970 who had a small blurb on the subject, and they were clearly not reviewing any book. In fact, I believe it was also Heyworth, fondly recalled by his legion of fans and admirers, that pointed out that there is no entry in the Library of Congress for any book under that name or anything resembling that name. So you are right. The "data on YACHTS AGAINST SUBS was posted on FR over a YEAR ago by another member..." of our team. And he showed you up to be completely wrong on all your claims.
Now, was it mac_truck that proved you were lying about that sub in Galveston? Or was that Heyworth, blessings and peace be upon him, that showed you up on that, too?
