Pro-Confederate sympathizers plan rally in Kansas. Do they know it was a free state? [View all]

On Saturday, a group that must have either a twisted sense of irony or a complete disregard for history will gather to celebrate the Confederate flag in Osawatomie, Kansas.

Inexplicably, the local chapter of CSA II: The New Confederate States of America plans to host an event at John Brown Memorial Park, which was named for an abolitionist with extreme anti-slavery views, in the free state of Kansas.

The planned Heritage not Hate cookout in Osawatomie will coincide with the raising of the Confederate flag at the state capitol in Columbia, South Carolina. The flag was removed in 2015 amid a national controversy over Confederate monuments.

Osawatomie City Manager Don Cawby said officials are aware of the event, and the park is open and available to the public.

I'll keep my eyes open to update how the rally went.
