American flag triumph

 

With all this flap about the Confederate flag being a symbol of slavery, don't people know that it was the Union army, carrying the American flag, that defeated the Confederacy and caused that flag to be struck down? That the American flag meant freedom for the people who were slaves, just as it means the same now for people from other countries. The American flag is a symbol of a land that is free and brave. If it isn't, why do people from other countries want to come to the US of A?
