One by one the progressive mayors and college presidents across the south have been chipping away at not only our heritage, but the honor of fallen heroes, many of who died in the great 'War for Southern Independence'. Actually those who would tear down these Confederate Monuments could care less about the statues themselves. It's not about these pieces of stone and bronze stained by the years. It's a power struggle between progressives and conservatives. I thought this was settled, a least for a short while with the election of Donald Trump. I was wrong, and now I fear we are on the losing side once again. Some of us are fighting back. The purpose of this blog is to inform you there is hope. We are attempting to raise funds to erect plaques honoring our fallen Confederate boys in gray. Plaques that will grace the town squares of small towns in the South where they will be welcome. Towns where the voters still have some common sense, unlike those idiots in the large cities and those poor lost young people in our universities. All denotations will be appreciated with the lion's share going to preserve the memory of those who fought and died in that great conflict.

Keep the memory of Robert E. Lee alive, Restore Confederate Monuments

The above image is the removal of Robert E. Lee statue from Lee Circle at the end of St. Charles street in New Orleans.  One must wonder if the statue of Andrew Jackson in Jackson square, in that same city,  will eventually meet that fate.  It surely will unless this liberal madness is snuffed out.  Attempts to revise history to conform to contemporary standards has been used in countries who fear the past.  Those supporting this current movement are those on the so-called progressive side of the spectrum are going against the values they used to embrace just a few years ago.  Progressive tolerance in 'gone with the wind' and been replaced with an ideology more in tune with that of the modern day Taliban, ISIS, the Communist Party of Joseph and the Chinese 'Red Guard' of Chairman Mao.  Movements like these will not die of their own volition, and can never be subdued by the sheep in the streets.  It is time, past time for the wolf to spring.   Are you that sheep or the wolf?

Trump donation will help restore historic home near Confederate statue

During the presidential campaign last year, Donald Trump said he wouldn’t accept a salary if elected. In April, the White House said he would donate his first quarter salary to the National Park Service. And in July, the agency announced some of those funds would be used to restore a historic home at Antietam National Battlefield in Maryland.
Work is scheduled to begin next summer on property that includes a 24-foot statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee astride his horse, Traveller. The statue, built by a Confederate enthusiast in 2003, sits on a bluff about 250 feet from the Newcomer House that will benefit from Trump’s donation.

Democrats don't just hate Confederate Monuments, they hate America

Democrats hate America.
That’s one takeaway from a recent Gallup poll that shows only 32 percent of Dems are “extremely proud” to be an American, versus a substantially higher number of Republicans.
Of course, that’s a bit snarky. The low showing on the “extremely proud” scale doesn’t necessarily translate into “I hate America.”
But any half-hearted political watcher can see that for him- or herself, anyway. Antifa, anyone? Maxine Waters? Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders, and the whole rising batch of self-identifying socialists who are somehow creeping out of their dirt piles to swear allegiance to a country they want to substantially change?

A majority of Americans want to preserve Confederate monuments

A majority of Americans think Confederate monuments should be preserved in public spaces, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll, a view that is at odds with efforts in many cities to remove them.
Thw poll found that 54 percent of adults said Confederate monuments “should remain in all public spaces” while 27 percent said they “should be removed from all public spaces.” Another 19 percent said they “don’t know.”
Responses to the poll were sharply split along racial and party lines, however, with whites and Republicans largely supportive of preservation. Democrats and minorities were more likely to support removal. Read more....

As Confederate monuments fall, group calls for restoration

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) A statewide group is calling for the repair and restoration of a Confederate monument that was removed from the courthouse lawn in Bradenton.

Save Southern Heritage and other groups held a news conference Tuesday to demand that the Manatee County Commission put the 93-year-old monument back on its pedestal in downtown Bradenton.

The county commission removed the monument Aug. 24, following an Aug. 21 protest that drew several hundred people who demanded its removal. The monument, an obelisk engraved with the names of Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, was damaged during the removal.

Rescue Statues of Stonewall Jackson and others who Progressives would tear down primarily because they are White Southerners s

The real reason today's Progressives would remove statues of Confederates from the courthouse square is because they are white southerners.

Group hopes to restore Confederate POW monument

INDIANAPOLIS – At the southern entrance to Garfield Park sits a weathered and worn white granite memorial to 1,616 service members who died during the Civil War, men who died about 150 years ago of disease, starvation and exposure in a prisoner-of-war camp in Indianapolis. They were Confederate soldiers who were captured in battle. 
For some, this 35-foot stone tower is a painful reminder of an army that fought, in great part, to protect a shameful institution: slavery. But Brian Blevins sees it more simply as a solemn tribute to soldiers who, while they fought for the Confederacy, were Americans. Blevins, 52, is leading an effort by the local chapter of Sons of Confederate Veterans to raise about $10,000 to restore the 102-year-old monument — clean the dirt-stained stone, make structural repairs and shine the corroded brass plates that list the names. 
Shepherdsville mural features Confederate general "I'm not trying to make a political statement," Blevins said. "It goes back to Indianapolis having a prisoner-of-war camp that no one really knows about." Blevins said he has ancestors who fought on both sides of the Civil War, and a relative is among those who died in the camp. "We all know that slavery was immoral and bad," Blevins said. "It's a beautiful monument, and an important piece of history that's been forgotten." The restoration effort has the support of the Indy Parks board, which voted unanimously in March to oversee the repairs and allow the Indy Parks Foundation to set up a fund to collect money for the cause. 
"From our perspective, we have a responsibility to maintain the assets we have," Indy Parks Director John W. Williams said. "When we get interested parties that are willing to raise the funds to restore the assets, we are going to listen to what they have to say." 
Williams, who is black and an Army veteran, said it is important to preserve this piece of American history. "At the end of the day," he said, "it is part of the park and has been part of the park for many years." Still, not everyone thinks this monument is worth fixing, or that such an effort should be endorsed by the city. "It's a very painful history for us," said the Rev. Charles Harrison, pastor at Barnes United Methodist Church. "Many in our community believe that a lot of the problems we're enduring as a people is the result of slavery. "I believe it should be left to rot and go away. I just don't see why we should be putting money into this." 
There has been no public outcry against the Garfield Park monument, but Harrison said that's because most people "haven't heard much about it." "I think if enough of the leaders in the community knew about this," Harrison said, "I think many would be outraged." Indy Parks Board member Joe Wynns voted in favor of allowing the Sons of Confederate Veterans to make the repairs, but he said it was not an easy decision. "I was the last one to cast my vote," Wynns said. "Growing up in the South, understanding what the Confederacy stood for, it (the monument) offends me." Wynns, who is black, said he had to balance his personal feelings with a duty to taxpayers and the park system.  Read more.....
