Gettysburg Just A Made a Major Decision About the Confederate Flag In Their Gift Shops

If you don’t think the flag should be flown above government buildings, I agree with you.  If a private company or a video game manufacturer want to not sell it, that’s their decision.  But National Parks on battleground sites from the Civil War? Seriously?

Gettysburg, the site of the Civil War’s pivotal battle, said Thursday it will no longer sell 11 items that use the battle flag as a stand-alone feature.

The bookstore says it will continue to offer items that feature both the U.S. and Confederate flags, as well as books, DVDs, and other educational materials “where the image of the Confederate flag is depicted in its historical context.”

Ok, so they aren’t erasing it completely. They’re just no longer selling it as stand alone merchandising.  Because, you know, if you’re going to a battle site from the Civil War, seeing the flag there might trigger you.
