Confederate Flag Sales Halted At National Park

June 27th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Workers at Antietam National Battlefield took Confederate flags, T-shirts and magnets off gift shop shelves this week as the National Park Service announced plans to stop selling some items with the increasingly controversial symbol. Park service officials said they would stop "stand-alone depictions" of the familiar battle flag, which has 13 white stars on a blue "X" over a red field. They said educational items such as books, exhibits, and media showing re-enactments and interpretive programs may use images of the battle flag "in its historical context" as long as they cannot be "physically detached."
