Default Tennessee County votes on raising Confederate flag

Quote:

Area was pro-Union during Civil War

(CNN) —During the Civil War, it was a patch of the South so reviled by the Confederacy for its pro-Union leanings that it in 1862 it was declared "enemy territory" by the secessionist government.

The area's most celebrated native, Andrew Johnson, was the only Southern senator to remain loyal to the Union. Johnson would go on to become president, succeeding Abraham Lincoln.

Now, more than 150 years later, Greene County, Tennessee, is once again ruffling feathers on matters pertaining to the long-gone Confederacy. This time, however, the rebellious county just might turn the historical tables and for the

first time fly the Rebel flag. The county commission will vote Monday on a resolution to fly the controversial banner above its county courthouse.

"Greene County recognizes and remembers those who fought for the South (...)," reads the measure, sponsored by Commissioner Buddy Randolph. "These efforts of these men to persevere must not be forgotten and the Confederate

Flag represents that heritage and history that our County should be proud of (...) "

Randolph, 67, scoffed at any critics who might have a problem with his proposal.
