Dear Friends,
Please spread the good work to everyone about the upcoming 30 days of April.
There are only 25 days left before the beginning of Confederate History and Heritage Month in April. The Confederate History Month committee would like to hear about your plans relating to proclamation signings, Confederate Memorials and related events. Please send this information to me at: and I will re-send to Co-Chairman Mike Crane for reposting at: for the Georgia Division and for the Sons of Confederate Veterans National Organization.
You do not have to be a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans to get on board. By letting us know what you are doing; we can better promote your event by informing others about the event. People throughout the USA and the World hunger for the Real-True History of the Southern people’s quest for independence during the War Between the States, 1861-1865.
I am starting a list here with Six (6) events. Let’s make it a thousand by April! Please repost and add to the list. Let’s make Confederate History Month 2011 a grand month of Southern remembrance.
If you observe Confederate History Month in May or June, we also want to hear from you.
