Furled and Unfurled: A History of the Confederate Battle Flag at Gettysburg

Here’s Supervisory Ranger Chris Gwinn giving an absolutely fantastic presentation on the confederate flag’s display at Gettysburg over many years from the battle itself to the present day. This was part of Gettysburg National Military Park’s 2016 Winter Lecture series.

The video’s description reads, “Few symbols are as recognizable or as controversial as the Confederate battle flag. From the men who carried it into battle, to its incorporation into monuments and memorials, the flag is inextricably linked with the battlefield of Gettysburg. Discover the compelling and controversial history of the flag at Gettysburg, and the on-going debate over its meaning and message.”
