Confederate Railroad

Illinois Governor J-B Pritzker insists cancelling the performance by Confederate Railroad at the DuQuoin State Fair was the right thing to do.

The band was nixed from the fair over concerns about the group's name and use of confederate flag imagery.

The band Confederate Railroad is coming to southern Illinois after all.

After the State of Illinois cancelled its performance at the Du Quoin State Fair next month because of its use of the Confederate flag and the State prohibiting using state resources to promote symbols of racism, Black Diamond Harley-Davidson in Marion will host the band.
