Eugene Oregon Confederate Flag Day Rally.

Eugene, Oregon is known for politically correct hippies, but did you know the Eugene had voted to succeed from the Union during the Civil War? For our National Confederate Day rally, the Long Tommers replanted the battle flag for the first time in here in over 150 years. SCV Camp 2273 rallied at the Federal building area, while counter protesters, to include Civil Alliance of Lane County, Black Lives Matter and Cascadia Anonymous held their event a few blocks away at the “Free Speech Plaza”.  Our rally concluded without any major incidents and the majority of all vehicle and foot traffic supported our cause with many hand waves and thumbs up. A few of the notable people we met that day included an eccentric self-proclaimed “monk” and “undercover” liberals.  KVAL news gave refreshingly objective interview with our camp and gave us fair coverage in the media.  Our camp had just recently received its chapter designation and our first rally was a complete success. If you can display Southern heritage in Eugene, you can do it anywhere.

Chuck Ellis,

Commander
