Battle Flags Across Alabama Project
Battle Flags and flagpoles FREE of charge in the front yards of people's
homes in Alabama.
Our project has been enthusiastically received and we have now
installed 30 flagpoles in the front yards of Alabamians, from the Florida
line to the Tennessee line, displaying our Veterans' Confederate Battle
Our flagpole is 16 feet high above the ground with 2 feet below the
ground set into a 2 foot section of 2 inch PVC, which is then immersed in
concrete. We use 1 7/8 inch galvanized steel pipe topped with a cap and
then attach a 3 x 5 foot Confederate Battle Flag.
It cost us about $60 to erect each flagpole. (Please see enclosed
photo.) Some are on highways with great exposure, some in neighborhoods
and some in the country. But all are in the front yards of people's homes
and promote the personal endorsement of the homeowners for our Veterans'
Flag to their friends, family and the public.
This personal endorsement in turn causes others to display the
Battle Flag. We now have over 100 requests for Battle Flags and poles to
be installed but not enough money to pay for the Flags, poles, and
installation. Will you help us? Please send a generous donation to:
