Top and associates investigates the stolen flag by visiting Confederate supporter collectors throughout the region; especially concentrating on those, who could not care less about ownership as possession is ten tenths of a collection. However, the Klan, other white supremacy groups, abortion bombers, and even law enforcement want to attack Top.
