The Sons of Confederate Veterans’ North Carolina Division will conduct its 29th annual Confederate Flag Day on Saturday at the historic state Capitol building.

Paul C. Graham of South Carolina will be the featured speaker and will deliver a presentation titled “Honoring Our Fathers.”

Graham holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in philosophy from the University of South Carolina. A philosophy instructor, he has partnered with Clyde Wilson in founding and operating The Shotwell Press, which the Sons of Confederate Veterans describe as “a leading publishing house for books defending the South.”

Graham has written articles and reviews for numerous publications, including The Simms Review, The Palmetto Partisan and The Abbeville Institute.

Ceremonies will begin at 1 p.m. Saturday in the historic House of Representatives chamber in the Capitol building. A color guard will escort the flags to the well of the House — the same chamber where North Carolina adopted its ordinance of secession in May 1861. Ellis Selph and his band will provide period and patriotic music.

Organizers say the event will prove to be “inspiring and educational.” All members of the general public are invited to attend.
