From the event host Kevin McKinley, Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 2088 PVT WILLIAM M. CARNEY - Atmore AL
The Confederate flag flies over the newly erected Escambia County Confederate Memorial as part of the AL Div Flags for Alabama program....come celebrate YOUR flag and YOUR heritage on Saturday August 15, at 10AM in beautiful downtown Canoe Alabama along Highway 31.
Directions to the Memorial: take the I-65 casino exit in Atmore and go south, turn left on Highway 31 North at the RR...this is also called Nashvile Ave... Follow 31 North about 5 miles....when you get to Canoe, AL you will come under a caution light on 31...there is a gas station on the right with a historic marker....turn left past the marker and cross tracks, make an immediate left and the flag will be on the right.
We are encouraging folks to bring a Confederate flag if possible, although not necessary...would like to see a show of support for the flag.
