Apple Removes All American Civil War Games From the App Store Because of the Confederate Flag

The United States is rethinking its relationship with the Confederate flag, a symbol of the South’s attempt to secede from the United States during the Civil War. Politicians are calling for its removal from public spaces and many retailers are removing products showing the flag from sale. Warner Bros. has even ceased licensing Dukes of Hazzard products that show the flag, including the iconic “General Lee” car.

It looks like Apple is joining this trend by seemingly removing games set in the Civil War that show the Confederate flag.

“Many large US companies, like Walmart and Amazon, have already banned the sale of any Confederate flag merchandise as a reaction to the recent events,” Touch Arcade reported.

“Now, it appears that Apple has decided to join them by pulling many Civil War wargames from the App Store. As of the writing of this story, games like Ultimate General: Gettysburg and all the Hunted Cow Civil War games are nowhere to be found. Apple is famous for reaching for the axe rather than the scalpel when it comes to political issues (like rejecting Hunted Cow’s Tank Battle 1942 for depicting Germans and Russians as enemies), so this move doesn’t come as a great surprise.”

Touch Arcade reports that Apple is claiming at least one of the games was removed “…because it includes images of the confederate flag used in offensive and mean-spirited ways.”

Since the games were ostensibly no longer listed in the iOS App Store, Polygon did a search for “civil war games iOS” on Google, and attempted to buy many of the games listed, only to find that they weren’t available on the U.S. store. While we were able to find a few games set during the Civil War in the App Store, some of which showed the Confederate Flag, large amounts of games seem to be missing. At least one developer has claimed the flag is why their game was removed.

There seems to be no differentiation between games using the flag “offensively” and others displaying it within its historical context. We’ve reached out to Apple, as well as impacted developers, for clarification but have not received a comment by the time of publication.

Mississippi’s Wicker wants flag with Confederate emblem replaced

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Mississippi Republican Senator Roger Wicker said on Wednesday that his state’s flag, which features a Confederate battle emblem in its upper left corner, should be replaced with one that is more unifying.

Weighing in on a debate that has swept across the American South since the massacre of nine blacks in a South Carolina church last week, allegedly by a white gunman, Wicker said Mississippi’s flag should be put in a museum and replaced.

“As the descendant of several brave Americans who fought for the Confederacy, I have not viewed Mississippi’s current state flag as offensive,” Wicker said in a statement.

“However, it is clearer and clearer to me that many of my fellow citizens feel differently, and that our state flag increasingly portrays a false impression of our state to others,” he said.

He said it would be up to Mississippi’s legislature and other state officials to make any decisions about the flag. An effort to remove the Confederate symbol from the flag was overwhelmingly rejected by voters in a 2001 state referendum.

Citing a Bible passage on avoiding offense to others, Wicker added, ” … the flag should be removed since it causes offense to so many of my brothers and sisters, creating dissension rather than unity.”

Mississippi was among the slave states that seceded from the United States in the 1860s and formed the Confederate States of America, triggering the Civil War.

Another was South Carolina, whose governor said on Monday that a Confederate battle flag that has flown on the state’s capitol grounds should be taken down. On Wednesday, Alabama’s governor banished the battle flag from the state’s capitol building, local media reported.

Dylann Roof, the alleged shooter in the South Carolina church killings, posed with the Confederate flag in several images that have been widely circulated since the massacre.
