About 30 klansmen held a rally at Gettysburg this weekend:

Confederate re-enactors from Virginia protested the Klan’s adoption of the Confederate battle flag as an emblem and its claim to be a continuance of the Confederate cause.

“These guys don’t stand for anything I stand for,” said Tim McCown of Jefferson, Md. “And it’s time we disengage our flag from what they stand for.”

Representatives of the national Sons of Confederate Veterans also came to protest the Klan’s efforts to identify with the Confederacy. In a nearby park, churches and other groups held a Unity Day rally.
