With the second I-95 Battle Flag project near completion, Bo Traywick has once again donated a case of books to the Va Flaggers. If you didn't get one the last time around, or would like to purchase additional books for gifts, please take this opportunity to support the Va Flaggers' I-95 Memorial Battle Flag Projects!
Va Flagger/Author H. V. "Bo" Traywick, Jr. has generously donated a case of his book "Empire of the Owls - reflections on the North's war against Southern secession" to the Va Flaggers. We will be offering the books for $20 each and ALL proceeds will go toward the I-95 Battle Flag Projects. Please consider purchasing this excellent book and supporting the Va Flaggers.
"This book will change your mind about everything you thought you knew about the War between the States. A reasoned, scholarly work, it is also a readable, gripping account of the war told by those who lived it. The dignified behavior of the Southerners defending their families comes through time and again. Noble sentiments of honor, duty and care of the defenseless are not lost in the desperation of war but elevated. The book will make you cry. It will make you proud. It will also make you mad about a senseless war that killed 612,000 young men and caused horrible suffering that lasted for generations. But it is an important addition to the Civil War dialogue now, during the Sesquicentennial, because it allows the long-suppressed voices of the South (Virginia, in particular) to speak for themselves and challenge the version of history written by the victors."
