The field of flags which we featured yesterday did not survive the rain very well. The donors’ cards were mostly lying on the ground. Someone added a Confederate flag in the midst of the United States Flags. This view was taken from the west facing east at approximately 5:45 PM on Friday, September 26, 2008.
