Bubba Hall participates in Civil War reenactments, marching as a shoeless soldier to give onlookers a glimpse of how bad southern soldiers had it.

Not everyone is happy to see the Confederate flag displayed in plain sight, but Corbin resident, Bubba Hall, says not one person has ever complained to his face.

“There have been negative comments made on the web, but I ignore them for the cowards that they are,” said Hall. “If someone wants to know why I fly the flag, all they have to do is ask me. It’s not for the reasons these cyber bullies are trying to make everyone believe.”
