A monument to “The memory of Carroll’s Confederate Soldiers who fought in defense of our constitutional rights from Bethel to Appomattox” stands in front of the Carroll County courthouse in Carrollton Mississippi.

We’re not talking about the Mississippi state flag that incorporates the stars and bars–this is the genuine article.
