Sign Petition

Proclamation in Support of a Confederate Heritage and History Month.

76 Signatures Goal: 100

The Prince William County(VA) Board of Supervisors refuse to honor local Confederate and Southern Heritage. Prince William County was the site of two major battles in the War for Southern Independence. The first-The 1st Battle of Manassas-is where Thomas Jackson earned his nick name of \"Stonewall.\" The County raised a number of units for the Confederate Army. The Board of Supervisors issues proclamations for other ethnic and racial groups, but refuses to do so for Confederate Heritage. The County claims that it treasures its past. The County even uses Confederate images such as soldiers in publications targeting tourists. So, while it seems that the County is willing to earn tax dollars from its Confederate History, the County is not willing to honor such history with a Proclamation. The Proclamation will be online until March 2004 and, will be sent to all 8 members of the Board.
