I've done the Maryland to Alabama trip a few dozen times (living in Alabama as a federal employee). If going through North Carolina, the Cherokee Reservation is worth a visit for a few different reasons.

I've noticed the Confederate flags gradually disappearing in various Southern places. As an example on the Maryland-VA border on RT13 there was a 25ft Confederate flag up until 5-6 years ago when it was replaced with an equally large Old Glory.

Weirdly I see more Confederate symbols in rural Kentucky/Tennessee than in rural Georgia/Alabama.

Now that I look back on it, perhaps our trip to Alabama and Florida in December 2004 established a baseline for roadside views of Confederate flags.

Dave K, are you working in Huntsville?

I work in Huntsville. Although I travel widely with my occupation.
