Editor’s Note: Washington and Lee University has backtracked and confirmed the bullying did take place.
This incident allegedly happened to a 15-year-old boy at the Washington and Lee demonstration last weekend:
“Since it was my first time in Lexington I wanted to see the Lee Chapel and the grave of Lee’s horse Traveller. As I began to head for the Lee Chapel, a [campus] Police Officer stopped me and said that I could not enter the campus property with my Battle Flag or any images of Confederate Flags on any of my possessions including my clothing. I really wanted to pay my respects to General Lee and Traveller so I had to turn my shirt inside-out, take off my hat, and take off my badge.”
Note: Although some of the “Civil War” bloggers have claimed this is a hoax, the local media has spoken to the teenage boy below. Washington and Lee University has since confirmed this incident and several others took place.
