Twice a week, about a dozen people stand alongside Richmond's Boulevard to protest the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts' removal of a Confederate flag from the Confederate Memorial Chapel on the museum grounds.

Now the group, Virginia Flaggers, is taking on the Museum of the Confederacy, which is opening a museum in Appomattox next week. The group plans to protest the branch's opening because, despite its request, a Confederate flag will not fly in front of the museum.
