We have this thing going on around our area now where a Confederate group is buying tiny parcels of land just off the interstate highway in order to install huge Stars and Bars flags.

Of course, Western NC was quite ambivalent (if not outright hostile) to the Civil War - especially after conscription was ordered. My dad’s family fought on both sides - the ones located in the mountains stuck with the Union; the ones in Central NC went with Lee’s army.

Sons of Confederate Veterans has set up at least two—one on I65 north of Montgomery, and the largest known example on I4 (IIRC) near Tampa. (Both are battle flags, not CSA national.)
