John Coski talked about his book The Confederate Battle Flag: America’s Most Embattled Emblem, published by Belknap Press. In his book the author chronicled the history of the flag and the many ways it has been used and the different meanings that have been attached to it. The Confederate flag has become a divisive symbol representing different things to different groups. Mr. Coski believed that it was misused during the rise of the Dixiecrats and the emergence of the anti-civil rights movement to become a symbol of racism to some. During the presentation, the author used slides showing the history of the Confederate Battle Flag. Following his remarks, Mr. Coski responded to questions and comments from members of the audience. close
