News broke today that the Nash Farm Battlefield Museum in Henry County, GA is going to close up shop. This came in apparent response to a request by Dee Clemmons, a County Commissioner, to “remove their Confederate flags and paraphernalia.” You can read about it here but I’ll give a brief summations. The museum is owned by Henry County. Nash Farm Battlefield Museum houses various artifacts and clothing exhibitions as well as history about the farm itself. According to the Henry Herald, much of the museums exhibitions are loans from private citizens. One such citizen pulled his collection. This prompted the County Board to close the museum. I plan to take a more in-depth look at this but I’m going to refrain from doing so at this time. WSB-TV is supposed to run the story at 4PM. This will hopefully provide a better look outlook on what happened.
