A confederate flag is seen at a tombstone on the cemetery at Beauvoir House,
Jefferson Davis’ historic home, in Biloxi, Miss., Thursday, Aug. 16, 2012.
Commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War can be an angst-filled
task in Mississippi, with its long history of racial strife and a state flag
that still bears the Confederate battle emblem. Well-intentioned
Mississippians who work for racial reconciliation say slavery was morally
indefensible. Still, some speak in hushed tones as they confess a certain
admiration for the valor of Confederate troops who fought for what was, to
them, the hallowed ground of home and country. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)
