Susan Lee of the Virginia flaggers will be our speaker. Born and raised in Highland Springs, a small suburb just east of Richmond, Susan grew up in the shadows of the Seven Days Battlefields, and as the daughter of a relic hunter and War Between the States enthusiast, was raised to honor and respect her Southern Heritage. She is the Great-Great Granddaughter of four Confederate Veterans, all of whom served from and for Virginia. A graduate of Highland Springs High School, she received a Bachelor's of Science in Education from Virginia Commonwealth University, and is currently employed at an architecture and design firm in Richmond.
She is member of the Richmond-Stonewall Jackson #1705 Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the Sally Tompkins Chapter #2 of the Order of the Confederate Rose, and an associate member of the Edmund Ruffin Fire Eaters #3000 Camp, Sons of Confederate Veterans.
In the fall of 2011, she helped organize the Virginia Flaggers, who have gained national attention for their ongoing flagging protest of the Virginia Museum of Fine arts after museum officials forced the removal of Confederate Battle flags from the Confederate Memorial Chapel, as well as their efforts in numerous other heritage defense battles throughout Virginia, and beyond.
