This section covers patches issued by various BSA entities (Councils; Districts; OA Lodges; & Trails. The focus is on patches issued with the Army of Northern Virginia Battle Flag. While many feel this is a distinctly Southern symbol, the flag was issued by BSA affiliated groups in most states and not just during the Civil War Centennial. To some these patches represent politically incorrect symbols. However, they represent the history of the BSA and the events they were issued for. They reflect a period of time where things were measured as they were. That is most important as history should be told in the context of the times. As Michael Crichton once said, "If you don't know history, then you don't know anything. You are a leaf that doesn't know it is part of a tree."
