North Carolina Civil War Sites Ditching Confederate gear | NCRenegade

State officials say there was no marching order to yank Confederate battle flags from gift shop shelves at North Carolina’s Civil War battlefields, but they don’t deny reports of a gradual phase-out.

Michelle Walker, a spokeswoman for the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, said the agency overseeing state historic sites “does not currently have a written policy that addresses the issue of the sale of Confederate battle flag merchandise.”

The rebel banner is reportedly unavailable at several state-maintained sites, including the Bentonville Battlefield southeast of Four Oaks in Johnston County. Jake Sullivan, chief of staff for the Sons of Confederate Veterans’ North Carolina Division, said his group has received numerous reports that the merchandise is disappearing.
