Hello, I woke up this morning to read an article that EBay is banning the sale of confederate flags. Our company sells Confederate and Union costumes and accessories for Civil war actors and I was surprised to find that Google Merchant center has made all of my Confederate costumes inactive this morning. Typically Google shopping gives you a reason why they are not listing such as does not meet policy, server unavailable, etc. but in this case it does not seem so.

If such is the case , then, presumably "Gone with the Wind" will be gone with the wind..

I just found the news article:

[huffingtonpost.com...]

Civil war actors teach history so that it will not repeat itself. Never ceases to amaze me.
