Wherever people stand on the issue, most are coming to accept that the days of the Confederate flag are numbered – if not completely behind us. But some aren't giving up on the symbol quite so easily. Like the gentlemen in this parade, for example.

The procession was filmed in Dalton, GA, a relatively small city in Whitfield County about 90 miles north of Atlanta (or 30 miles southeast across the state line from Chattanooga, TN). During the Civil War, the town was the site of the First Battle of Dalton and, as you might have guessed, the Second Battle of Dalton as well. And it still has more artifacts from what locals might call the War of Northern Aggression than just about anywhere else in America. In short, the Confederacy didn't come and go unnoticed in Dalton, as the participants in this gathering were evidently keen to demonstrate.

The parade was made up of trucks waving the Southern Cross (along with other flags), and appear to have had a police escort blocking off the street. The local cops, however, weren't enough to protect them from themselves, or a rather ironic manifestation of karma that might have been avoided with a well-placed horn or two playing Dixie.

You'll need to watch the two-minute video for yourself to see what we're talking about. We just wouldn't recommend you do so in a workplace environment, at least not with the sound turned up, on account of the cussin'. Political symbols aside, though, fortunately no one appears to have been hurt too badly when the South tried to rise again on the streets of Dalton.
