The Watauga Historical Association has declared war on anything Confederate. Dawn Peters, has been the drum beater for this hate toward our heritage, heroes and flags. She has her nose up the butt of the local media and politicians which cater to her every whim.
Just a bit of what the Tennessee Flaggers and SCV are fighting in Elizabethton, Tennessee.
Posted on the WHA Facebook page:
"Watauga Historical Association Due to the threat of violence and the fact that members of the SCV will be in the cemetery toting guns, the WHA has decided to forgo trying to clean up the cemetery. Previous Saturdays have been taken up with flag flapping guards, toting guns across from the cemetery. Therefore, we have not been able to get the grass mowed. They came into the cemetery with a lawn mower and chopped it up like a drunk driver loose at the wheel. Vandalism and Grave Desecration continues to be done by people with no authority to do so." ~ Dawn Peters
The claim of threats and violence to WHA members by SCV & The Tennessee Flaggers made by Dawn Peters is a lie. .... She will stoop to the depths of hell to tarnish our good name.
As you can see, Dawn Peters (WHA) has fallen of the deep end!
She is lobbying to have Green Hill Cemetery rezoned so she can have the Confederate flag removed from the cemetery.
This memorial stone was placed in Green Hill Cemetery on the morning of October 10, 2012. The camp worked hard to gain enough money and with assistance from the Tennessee Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, raised enough money to purchase the memorial. A dedication ceremony was held in the City of Elizabethton on October 13th at 2 p.m..... Without the memorial!!
The Tipton S.C.V. Camp (most proud of them) took it upon themselves to place the monument in Green Hill Cemetery... This will surly cause Dawn Peters blood to a boil and a fight will surely arise.
She has on several occasions called police on SCV & Tennessee Flaggers to charge them with grave desecration for placing flags and mowing grass around Confederate graves.
The Tennessee and Virginia Flaggers is a thorn in the side of WHA and they are running scared.... Will you help keep them running? The Tennessee Confederate Flaggers & SCV could sure use some help in this matter..... Got enough Southron grit to fight!?
