      The Georgia Historical Society had a detailed, heavily footnoted, article on
      the adoption of the present Georgia flag. The article was a couple of years
      ago.
      The gist of the article was that the current flag was modified to reflect
      the sympathies of those who wanted to maintain Jim Crow and continue the
      denial of Civil Rights to Georgia's sscond class Black citizens .

      As for the Cause of the War - well, the Americans of the 1860's, of all
      colors and all geographic regions, had no doubts that the Confederacy was
      created to preserve the Peculiar Institution as the ''cornerstone'' of the
      new country.

      I believe the Georgia flag should remain the same. The Civil War was NOT
      fought just for slavery, so therefore the Confederate flag should not be
      seen as a flag of racism,
