While the mainstream media, race baiters, and agitators would have us believe that the millions of descendants of the Confederate army have decided to quietly acquiesce to their demands to cleanse our history and heritage from this country, and are content to sit back and watch as our monuments, memorials and flags are removed… the truth is that the recent actions that began with the SC legislature, and continued to snowball across the nation, have served to have quite the opposite effect.


Confederate flags are sold out at retailers, flags are being flown where they never were before, rides and rallies are INCREASING in number and attendance each week…and we continue to hear new like this, out of Statesboro, GA…


I received this message from my good friend Mike Sorrell last last night:


“Our battle to save our monument in Statesboro Ga has been won. The County Commission voted unanimously to leave our monument as is. Those wanting it to stay was running 7 to one on all polls. The Sons of Confederate Veterans would like to thank the commission for supporting our Southern heritage over outsiders, as well as members of both 5th and 6th brigades for their support. Michael A. Sorrell, Past Commander, present Judge Advocate,Ogeechee Rifles 941.”


A UNANIMOUS vote by the county commission to leave the Confederate monument alone!

“Significant opposition” by the SCV and UDC is cited in this victory!  The three meetings regarding this issue were PACKED with Confederate supporters, who showed up to stand up and be counted.


The determination and resolve with which these men and women met the opposition in Statesboro reminds me of the words of Virginia Governor Letcher, in response to Cameron’s call for Virginia to supply troops to raise arms against our Southern brothers:


“You have chosen to inaugurate civil war, and having done so, we will meet it in a spirit as determined as the Administration has exhibited towards the South.”


It is time for us all to take our stand…and meet the opposition with  MORE determination than they have exhibited in their efforts to destroy our history and heritage and dishonor our Confederate veterans.

Congratulations to all who had a part in this victory in Statesboro!

God bless the boys from Georgia…and GOD SAVE THE SOUTH!
