I got  notice about the Shriners on Aug 11…my Civil War Courier arrived this past Saturday. On page 18 is a full page ad about the upcoming MAJOR BATTLES OF THE CIVIL WAR…SEPT 17-20, 2015 – HOSTED BY CAPT. ROB KEY 26TH LOUISIANA INFANTRY – AND CLEBURNES DIVISION BLUE GRAY ALLIANCE. The battles are Shapesburg, Gettysburg, Franklin, Shiloh, Wilderness, Chickamauga, Wilson’s Creek ….at the
bottom of the ad it says: ALL NET PROCEEDS GO TO SHRINERS INTERNATIONAL!!!!
Please contact Jim Busby with Cleburnes Division & urge him to REDIRECT their contributions – DO NOT GIVE ANY MONEY TO THE SHRINERS!  It is a shame that the Shriners have jumped on this bandwagon of historical ignorance when they didn’t have  dog in this fight!  They are put politics ABOVE THE CHILDREN!!!!  I have been seeing the Shriners ads on TV with the little children with catastrophic birth defects. Shriners need to tend to the needs of these tens of thousands of children…we must make them aware that SOUTHERNERS LIVES MATTER & WE ARE OFFENDED by their proclamation of ignorance!
Jim Busby’s e-mail addy is:   jimbusby3@cox.net
 Also, please write the Imperial Potentate …ask him which is more important ….the children or engaging in this cultural genocidal holocaust against Southerners and our God -given birthright!
I have written him already…but have yet to get a reply!
Thanks y’all….THE WAR IS ON!
Confederately yours,
