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.

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.
