A local group of self-proclaimed anti-fascism activists called “ANTIFA” are planning on holding a rally at Gettysburg National Battlefield on July 1st in protest of President Trump and asks it’s members to “Bring and Burn Confederate Flags”. The reasoning behind why this group picked the date and location for their rally is for the importance Gettysburg played in the American Civil War. The Battle of Gettysburg started on July 1, 1863, when Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia met General George Meade’s Union Army of the Potomac. During the three-day battle, about 165,000 soldiers clashed in and around the small town of Gettysburg. When the Battle of Gettysburg was over on July 3, 1863, 51,000 soldiers were casualties (killed, wounded, captured or missing) in what remains the largest battle ever fought in North America. There are approximately 1,328 monuments, markers and memorials that stand in both the cemetery and battlefield to commemorate the troops who fought there.
American left-wing radicals are vile cowards, whose goal is not so much a mockery of the American past, but a complete destruction of the country and its cultural appearance. If their plan is successfully committed, then they will start bonfires from American flags, chipping pieces from the memorials of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson in the capital and other cities, as well as committing violence against all those who do not agree with them. The state and law enforcement agencies condone the antics of the left radicals, which means that the struggle against them falls on the shoulders of genuine American patriots. Otherwise, America will lose not only the past, but the future.
