According to KSPR channel 33 in Springfield, Mo:

“BRANSON, Mo. — Preston Baughman is known as a champion of Southern heritage.  The Branson native wore shirts with the confederate flag almost daily, just like  his dad.

“Preston wore the confederate flag just about every day. It was
rare you seen him without it on,” said Mike Baughman, Preston’s father.
“Graduation night, out of 300 and some kids that graduated with him, he was the
only one the entire class stood up and saluted when he went across the stage that night. And he was wearing the flag under his robe.”

After graduating from Branson High School, Preston Baughman died in a crash. His family put up three crosses and draped his favorite flag over them. Shirts were also made with his favorite symbol, the confederate flag.

“His shirt has a rebel flag in the front and a big one on the back,” said brother Austin  Baughman. “And that’s the one I got kicked out of school for last Friday.”
