Response to Justice matters. (Reply #7)

11. They failed to take the Capitol but it's not like they didn't try...

Images from the scene show attackers waving the Confederate battle flag in the halls of the Senate. Judith Giesberg, a Civil War historian at Villanova University tells Business Insiderís Aria Bendix that the flag was appropriated in the 20th century, and continues to this day, to perpetuate the system of white supremacy in America. Wednesday was a grim first: During the entire Civil War from 1861 to 1865, the flag never entered the U.S. Capitol. (In fact, Confederate troops never took Washington at all. When Confederate General Jubal A. Early launched an attack on Fort Stevens, Union reinforcements arrived in the nick of time to save D.C. from Confederate invasion.)
