    ...or so for his great writing and to reconnect with that history. Although a Southerner, Foote abhored what modern day rednecks were doing with the Confederate flag.

      Another point I wanted to make.  If you want to show your Southern pride, please, use the State Flag of The Confederacy.  The Battle Flag has been so abused by racists and The Klan that it has become a banner of racism and willful ignorance.  It does no honor to The Confederate Dead.  It is merely a middle finger to African Americans.
