  1. Is it a criminal offence to wave the Confederate flag? I have heard people say that slavery was just a pretext for the war, and that the real reasons were economy and agriculture.

    1. It is not against the law to display the rebel flag. Our civil war began because slave states feared slavery would be outlawed and slaves set free. Slave labor gave them great economic advantage tp raise crops to supply cheap cotton to European textile firms, as well as low cost rice and sugar cane for export. Sugar cane sold to Cuba and Jamaica to make rum for US and Britain.
