The Festa Confederada is an annual celebration of the Confederate ancestry of Americana. The festival is an effort to preserve the traditions of the Old South of the United States, which is also reflected in the city’s Spanish heritage. It is held in a field adjacent to the Cemiterio dos Americanos, which is the resting place of the first Confederados and their wives and daughters.
The Confederados are descendants of slaves from the Southern United States. They escaped to Brazil after the American Civil War and were enticed by the land and cheap labor. In 1866, more than 500 Confederados immigrated to Brazil. Later, Brazil became the last American nation to abolish slavery. In the 1920s, Brazilian authorities enforced abolition. Approximately 2,500 people attended the celebration to honor their Confederate heritage. The festivities included down-home cooking and loud country music.
Route of festival
The Route of Confederate Festival in Americana Colorado is a yearly event that honors the Confederate Army. The festival is organized by the Fraternity of American Descendants, an organization that tends the Confederate cemetery grounds. It promotes the Lost Cause orthodoxy. However, some anti-Confederate groups have pushed for the festival to remove the Confederate flag.
Despite the controversy surrounding this event, the Confederate flag is widely displayed at the festival. Although a recent municipal law in the state forbids the display of racist symbols, the festival is still being held. The head of the Fraternidade Descendencia Americana opposes the new law and believes that the Confederate flag does not represent slavery.
Significance of flags
The Confederate flag has deep meaning for many Americans. Many of them have ties to the Confederacy, but there are also differences in interpretations. Some people see the flag as a symbol of slavery, while others see it as a symbol of freedom.
The Confederate flag has long been associated with racial violence. In fact, some have questioned whether a statue at the Colorado Statehouse does any better than a statue. Nevertheless, a plaque beneath the statue of General Grant states that the Union army attacked the Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians at Sand Creek, leaving about 150 dead.
Ancestral pride theme
The confederate festival in Americana, Colorado, is celebrating the gay and lesbian community with an ancestral pride theme. Coloradans are also celebrating civil unions. The state has had a “hate state” reputation for 21 years, and PrideFest is a great opportunity to celebrate the LGBT community.
