Subject: JEFFERSON DAVIS, THE LAST WASHINGTONIAN PRESIDENT
” Thanks for a thought provoking and entertaining presentation Tuesday night. I thought it was fascinating”.
I received the following comment in an email from a member of the Little Rock Civil War Round Table after my presentation about Jefferson Davis last week.
I continue to seek and accept invitations to speak to groups interested in American history, current events, and politics. I have spoken in every state of the Confederacy, except Kentucky, and would really love to speak there to complete my personal dream of talking in every state.
For talks to SCV and UDC groups I focus on the War and do programs on the following topics:
THE BATTLE OF CHANCELLORSVILLE
ROBERT E, LEE, THE MAN, THE CHRISTIAN
A VIEW FROM SEMINARY RIDGE, Why did General order Pickett’s Charge
DIXIE’S GREATEST SECRET, the Confederate Navy
A CONFEDERATE CHRISTMAS
THE 1862 VALLEY CAMPAIGN OF STONEWALL
JEFFERSON DAVIS, THE LAST WASHINGTONIAN PRESIDENT
I can provide references, multiple.
I an a graduate of THE CITADEL, a former US Army Infantry officer, a former aide in the New State Senate, and former Asst. Professor of Military Science at Fordham University, Marist College, and John Jay College. I am the author of five published books, Military Lessons of the Civil War, The Rebel Mountain Reader, Southern Fried Ramblings with Grits and all the Fixin’s, The Confederate Night Before Christmas, and Because of Him.
In addition I do presentation concerning how God used Christianity to create the United States of America, 1492 – 1789. While the history of the South and the War have been revised, the history of God in the formation of America has been erased… it is massive, undeniable, provable, and something I love to speak about.
Finally, if you want a speaker who knows what he is about, will debate any many anywhere, at any time, and who’s goal is to do God’s work as He tells me to do it…I am your guy. If you Southern PC…not me. I was in the SCV 19 years, rose to the position of 1st Lt Commander of the State of Texas, and was thrown out because I advocated strongly for an active political aspect to the SCV, but also condemn slavery as a sin.
Despite the dismissal from the SCV, former state commanders support me, and provide references. And while Kennedy brothers are friends, and I admire them both immensely, we probably differ on one or two points.
Would love to hear from you, I am,
Your Obedient Servant,
Mark Vogl, Rebel Mountain, Texas
