Posted October 13, 2018 09:00:01 Congress will debate the Confederate Flag, but the flag’s future is in limbo.
That’s because lawmakers will likely take up legislation this week to amend a 1996 law that says the flag should be flown at half-staff in federal buildings.
But it could take weeks for the flag to be put up again, or it could be flown from its permanent perch in the U,S.
In this article, we take a look at the history of the flag, how the U.,S.
and Confederate soldiers have connected, and what the future of the Confederate Memorial in Washington looks like.
The flag’s history A flag is an emblem of nationhood, heritage and the people who fought for it.
The Flag Code of 1913 says: “Every American, whether born in the United States or not, shall have the right to fly a flag that is of his own choosing and that he may display on his person or in his house or elsewhere without restriction.”
Congress passed the Flag Code in 1913, and it was the first such law.
The code called for a flag to have three stripes, one white, one blue and one red, with a horizontal line running through them.
The blue stripe is traditionally associated with the Confederacy and was meant to represent the blue sky.
In 1876, a new Confederate flag, with white stars and a black eagle, was adopted by some in the South and flown at a white flag in defiance of the law.
In 1926, the flag was removed from the Capitol grounds.
Its replacement was adopted in 1932.
The next year, a white, blue and red Union flag was flown in Washington, D.C. When the Confederate battle flag was raised in the 1860s, it was not flown from the U House in Washington because it was considered too politically incorrect for the White House.
But by the end of the war, the war flag had become a symbol of national unity and the nation’s commitment to defending itself.
It was not until 1963, when President John F. Kennedy authorized the flying of a Confederate flag from the White house grounds to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Civil War, that the flag began to appear at the Capitol.
It stayed there until 1961, when the House removed it, but it was never taken down.
The Confederate flag still appears at the U Capitol, as do other flags of the Confederacy.
As a result of its history, the Confederate memorial in Washington is now considered a national symbol, even though it is not part of the federal flag.
A few states, such as Mississippi and Alabama, have passed resolutions asking Congress to reconsider its decision to remove the flag from public buildings.
Others have passed bills seeking to remove it, such in South Carolina, where Rep. Jim Jordan of Columbia has proposed a resolution to remove from the grounds of the Capitol, according to The Associated Press.
“The flag is the flag of the South, but we want to get back to that, that we’re all Americans and we’re proud to have that flag in our nation’s capital,” Jordan said.
“We need to have the best of all worlds in this country, and that’s what we’re fighting for, and I believe that this flag represents that.”
The flag was officially removed from federal buildings in 1967.
But even after the flag went up from the top of the U Street building, it never went down.
Congress passed a law in 1966 that created the Civil Rights Commission, which is charged with identifying any violations of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
The commission’s recommendations are sent to the president.
The Supreme Court ruled in 1967 that the act violates the 14th Amendment, which prohibits states from discriminating against people because of race, color, religion or national origin.
So in 1967, Congress passed an amendment to the Civil Service Reform Act, which included a provision that would allow the commission to recommend that the federal government eliminate the flag.
The amendment, introduced by Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, D-N.Y., passed the Senate, but not the House.
The Civil Rights act has never been formally repealed, and the Department of the Treasury says it continues to work to get the flag back.
It has not yet come up for debate, but Moynihman said it could pass this week.
In 2014, the Senate passed a resolution calling for the removal of the banner from the Senate building.
A coalition of Democratic senators, led by Sens.
Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Chris Coons of Delaware, wrote to then-Secretary of Labor Tom Perez in June 2016.
“When the flag is not flown at the highest possible level in federal facilities, it undermines the institution of the office of the secretary of labor,” the letter stated.
The resolution was not put to a vote until last month.
“It’s been the flag for 50 years,” said David Platt, a professor at American University
