A new battle line has formed in the national debate over Civil War flags and symbols. The school last month invited fifth-graders to dress up as characters from the Civil War. Davis says a white student dressed as a plantation owner approached her son and said "You are my slave." Davis says she wants Cobb County school officials to understand the pain that caused her son. She also wants the school to stop the annual Civil War dress-up day.
