Va Flaggers Introduce…ConfederateArchives.com
“Surrender means… the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy.” – Gen. Patrick Cleburne, CSA
Every day, we are forced to wade through an internet filled with articles and information about the War Between the States from the perspective of those who would rewrite history to fit their Anti-Southern agenda. Va Flaggers Tripp and Jack Lewis had an idea to try and do something about it and we are very excited to roll out their answer in the brand new search engine www.confederatearchives.com
The site is family friendly, and has fast, free access to facts and information that has been screened and streamlined to make searching for information about the War Between the States faster and more productive.
Why use confederatearchives.com instead of google or other search engines?
(1) We only index one topic: Southern History and Heritage from 1828 to present. Type "Lee" on google and see how many results come up for LEE JEANS instead of General Lee. Then try ours.
(2) We have quicker updates to our listed sites.
(3) We offer another place to locate information should google ever decide to censor the content in their search engine.
(4) We will allow only accurate information in our search engine. Hate pages, and sites with inaccurate and false information will be removed.
(5) No Pornography.
(6) With this new site, WE can start cataloging and documenting OUR Heritage and History for generations to come and REMAIN in CONTROL of this database when other search engines come and go.
Sound good? We think so, too…and we need YOUR help to make this project successful. What can you do?
(1) USE IT! Use it when you’re researching the WBTS, ancestry, or any search related to the CSA. The more it is used, the better the results will be when people search in the future.
(2) Add your favorite websites using the link on the front page of the search engine.
