Confederate flags in Town

In response to the Confederate Flags in Town.  The Town of Funkstown has the Confederate Flags throughout the Town because this is the weekend of the Re-enactment of the Battle of Funkstown.  Groups come from all over the United States to participate in the Battle.
The Town of Funkstown does not endorse controversy, but the Battle is a part of living history.  It would be a disservice to the participants and to the spectators to not properly represent a part of history, and the Confederate Flag is a part of the Battle of Funkstown history.
When the event is over this weekend, the flags will be taken down.

Paul Crampton, Jr.
Mayor
Town of Funkstown

Help needed!

Any person that lives in town may apply to become a member of the planning commission. Just contact The office for the details as we are currently in need of 3 members.
