National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis said Thursday that “stand-alone depictions of Confederate flags have no place in park stores,” a local affiliate reported.

The decision to pull the merchandise comes in the wake of a the shooting death of nine black members of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in South Carolina. Dylann Storm, 21, was arrested June 18 in connection with the killings, which took place the previous night.

    The Stars and Bars was not the flag used at Gettysburg, It was the flag of the Army of Northern Virginia that was use. Lee’s army. It’s about time they got it right.

    The Libertards would have us believe that the Confederate Army had no Standard.

    The Gettysburg battle field , hides one army in the battle, who would spend their money and time to visit a historic battlefield that refuses to identify one of the Armies that fought there. I have made my last visit to Gettysburg and any other battlefield, who hides half of the fight from the visitors there. In Gettysburg history never happened.

      Exactly. I guess the Confederate army never existed, and those who died never lived. Why are they keeping the American flag items?

        What a bunch of sniveling cowards. They won’t get my money.

        Not under that flag they didn’t at Gettysburg.

    The Confederate flag is the flag of the Democrat party.
    Every state that fought the North was Democrat.

      At that time – is true
