"Anthony was a warrior," said friend, H.K. Edgerton.  "Make no never mind about that. He was a man who loved the south, who dearly loved the south. He was my brother, my friend." On Sunday,  Pro-Confederate Edgerton was among the hundreds gathered at the First Baptist church in Oxford to remember the life of Anthony Hervey.
"It was a total shock," said Alex Coleman, friend of Hervey. "This wasn’t expected at all. We used to set at High Point Coffee and talk to him every morning.  And for him to be gone is a hard thing.” The late 49-year-old died tragically in a car accident. He was a black confederate and a strong supporter of the state flag. Hervey was often seen wearing confederate regalia in support of his southern beliefs. “Tony was a great guy," said Coleman. "He definitely had views that some people didn’t agree with, but I believe that is just going to be the way the world is set up." It came as a shock to Edgerton on Sunday, when he was asked to leave the church while proudly holding the Confederate flag. “If my flag can’t go, I can’t go,” Edgerton said.
"It would have been a huge disappointment for Anthony, especially to ask me to leave with the flag. He would have wanted me standing next to his casket with this flag,” Edgerton added.
Edgerton was upset by the fact he couldn’t bring his flag inside the church, so he chose to stand outside during the services, still honoring his friend.  Following the funeral, a Confederate Military Procession was held around the Oxford square. The loss was hard for many, but loved ones know he is in a better place.
