No, I'm no more racist than the next person. The fact is that the War between the states A had very little to do with slavery. In fact, it had nothing to with slavery until 1863 when Lincoln used it as a political agenda to save his sorry, dictator wannabe butt.

The War Between the States was about state rights. The north was imposing tariffs out the wazoo on the south. Illegal tariffs, I might add.

Sure, the south wasn't perfect; who is? All I'm saying is that they were the ones ultimately in the right in that 19th century fiasco and they took the flack for it because the winners write the history books. No the true history is written by warriors.

Unfurl and raise our Confederate States National Flag to it’s rightful place and glory.

Duty, responsibility and my own personal honor require of me to do whatever is lawful, peaceful and honorable, in order to restore the Confederate States Constitution to power, reseat the Confederate State Government, and reinstate the Confederate States of America to it’s rightful independence.

Deo Vindice!



Lincoln the Dishonest Emancipator

Lincoln the Dishonest Emancipator

Lincoln as well as we know is the most brain washed character taught to everyone in schools to this day. Well Lincoln not only destroyed the union but he hung people in his cabinet for not listening to him. His famous quote was to not mix blacks and whites and send all blacks back to Africa. One the war was not over slavery it was over taxation ,states rights and...
oppressive government. Lincolns goal was never to abolish slavery which it never happened with the "Emancipation Proclamation". One of the most horrific examples of Lincoln the tyrant is when he suspended habeas corpus in Maryland and areas of the Midwest in 1861. Further expanding his tyranny in regards to habeas corpus, Lincoln officially suspended it nationwide on September 24th, 1862. Abraham Lincoln also jailed thousands of Americans who he felt were going to vote for Democratic candidates. Many Democrats who were anti-Civil War were also jailed, thus making Lincoln a tyranncial monster. Before Lincoln’s tyrannical rule, there was nothing wrong with states that wanted to secede from America. Lincoln ended that and made secession a form of high-treason and pretty much an act of war. Lincoln’s tyranny knew no bounds. Not only did he jail Southern sympathizers but Lincoln also had many of them executed, simply for the fact that their views could spread like cancer and kill his efforts at shaping the country into what he wanted it to be. His anger also affected the Sioux Indians in what is considered the largest mass hanging in American history. Lincoln had 38 Sioux Indians hung in Minnesota because his administration didn’t live up to their side of the treaties established with the Indian Nations, which forced the Sioux Indians to steal eggs from Americans just so they could eat. Lincoln is often regarded as the greatest president ever and as a hero to blacks and a man who fought for civil liberties and upheld the Constitution and the ideals of our Founding Fathers. Nothing could be further from the truth. Lincoln was a racist scum, a tyrant and only out for his own interests and his evil ways. Lincoln destroyed liberty and the constitution, set this country up to be violated by its future leaders and the opposite of our Founding Fathers. Abraham Lincoln is the type of tyrant that the Founding Fathers freed us from and warned us about. Unfortunately, Lincoln’s power was too great and those who opposed him were forcibly shut up as he spread his own positive propaganda and wrote history in his favor. John Wilkes Booth should have murdered him earlier in the war. Lincoln had 750,000 soldiers killed for what reason i dont know to this day. The war was never over slavery. That was just a way or excuse to keep himself in office. The gettysburg address was a copied speech from another man while having smallpox. When he was on his way back from washington he told everyone on the train that i guess everyone got a little bit of something.
The reality of Lincoln is not what is taught in so called public schools. The reality of Lincoln is taught with fraud. The spread of our true history is at it’s highest levels in everything that surrounds Lincoln and his reign. He has been deified through rewritten history and half-truths.
"Honest Abe" Nothing was honest about him thats why we call him Dishonest Abe. He was the farthest from Honest. Shows how much of a great Emancipator he really was!

University Greys Article by Freda Mincey Burton Director Confederate Heritage

On the campus of the University of Mississippi young men are going through their daily routines, talking about sweethearts, families, studies, and their futures. The school was opened in 1848, in Oxford, Mississippi. On May 4th, 1861 after Mississippi seceded from the Union, most of the faculty and students joined the Confederacy, not knowing what laid before them. They were called the "University Grey's", because of the color of their uniforms and coming from Mississippi University. 135 out 139 students enlisted, Co A 11th Mississippi Infantry they became part of the Army of Northern Virginia and served in some of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War.  When the Fall Semester started only four young men showed up for class and the university closed, but for the "University Grey's", it had only begun. A letter had to be written on behalf of the young men  to the college for reception or rejection, but they said if they are sent home they will join other companies so they must be allowed to do some fighting, and they were allowed to stay enlisted. The "University Grey's, fought in some of the bloodiest battle of the Civil War, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chickamauga, Seven Pines, and Gettysburg.
   At Gettysburg the "University Grey's", were are part of Pickett's Charge. They attacked to the left of  Brain Farm the 12th New Jersey were positioned behind a fence armed with  smoothbore 1842 Springfield Rifles loaded with 6 and 9 pound buckshot. The "Grey's", penetrated further into union positions than any other unit. The 12th New Jersey held their fire until the 11th Mississippi was 50 yards away and unleashed hell ! The 11th Mississippi, the " University Grey's", vanished into the history of the Confederacy they had 100% casualties.
   The young men from the campus of Mississippi State University, with their dreams and futures are only with us in spirit.  The "University Grey's", should always be in our memory, held close to our hearts, for the sacrifice of their young lives for our beloved Confederacy.

March 26th 1860 South Carolina Secedes From the Union

Declaration of the Immediate Causes Which Induce and Justify the Secession of South Carolina from
the Federal Union
The people of the State of South Carolina, in Convention assembled, on the 26th day of April, A.D., 1852, declared that the frequent violations of the Constitution of the United States, by the Federal Government, and its encroachments upon the reserved rights of the States, fully justified this State in then withdrawing from the Federal Union; but in deference to the opinions and wishes of the other slaveholding States, she forbore at that time to exercise this right. Since that time, these encroachments have continued to increase, and further forbearance ceases to be a virtue.
And now the State of South Carolina having resumed her separate and equal place among nations, deems it due to herself, to the remaining United States of America, and to the nations of the world, that she should declare the immediate causes which have led to this act.
In the year 1765, that portion of the British Empire embracing Great Britain, undertook to make laws for the government of that portion composed of the thirteen American Colonies. A struggle for the right of self-government ensued, which resulted, on the 4th of July, 1776, in a Declaration, by the Colonies, "that they are, and of right ought to be, FREE AND INDEPENDENT STATES; and that, as free and independent States, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent States may of right do."
They further solemnly declared that whenever any "form of government becomes destructive of the ends for which it was established, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute a new government." Deeming the Government of Great Britain to have become destructive of these ends, they declared that the Colonies "are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved."
In pursuance of this Declaration of Independence, each of the thirteen States proceeded to exercise its separate sovereignty; adopted for itself a Constitution, and appointed officers for the administration of government in all its departments-- Legislative, Executive and Judicial. For purposes of defense, they united their arms and their counsels; and, in 1778, they entered into a League known as the Articles of Confederation, whereby they agreed to entrust the administration of their external relations to a common agent, known as the Congress of the United States, expressly declaring, in the first Article "that each State retains its sovereignty, freedom and independence, and every power, jurisdiction and right which is not, by this Confederation, expressly delegated to the United States in Congress assembled."
Under this Confederation the war of the Revolution was carried on, and on the 3rd of September, 1783, the contest ended, and a definite Treaty was signed by Great Britain, in which she acknowledged the independence of the Colonies in the following terms: "ARTICLE 1-- His Britannic Majesty acknowledges the said United States, viz: New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, to be FREE, SOVEREIGN AND INDEPENDENT STATES; that he treats with them as such; and for himself, his heirs and successors, relinquishes all claims to the government, propriety and territorial rights of the same and every part thereof."
Thus were established the two great principles asserted by the Colonies, namely: the right of a State to govern itself; and the right of a people to abolish a Government when it becomes destructive of the ends for which it was instituted. And concurrent with the establishment of these principles, was the fact, that each Colony became and was recognized by the mother Country a FREE, SOVEREIGN AND INDEPENDENT STATE.
In 1787, Deputies were appointed by the States to revise the Articles of Confederation, and on 17th September, 1787, these Deputies recommended for the adoption of the States, the Articles of Union, known as the Constitution of the United States.
The parties to whom this Constitution was submitted, were the several sovereign States; they were to agree or disagree, and when nine of them agreed the compact was to take effect among those concurring; and the General Government, as the common agent, was then invested with their authority.
If only nine of the thirteen States had concurred, the other four would have remained as they then were-- separate, sovereign States, independent of any of the provisions of the Constitution. In fact, two of the States did not accede to the Constitution until long after it had gone into operation among the other eleven; and during that interval, they each exercised the functions of an independent nation.
By this Constitution, certain duties were imposed upon the several States, and the exercise of certain of their powers was restrained, which necessarily implied their continued existence as sovereign States. But to remove all doubt, an amendment was added, which declared that the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, respectively, or to the people. On the 23d May , 1788, South Carolina, by a Convention of her People, passed an Ordinance assenting to this Constitution, and afterwards altered her own Constitution, to conform herself to the obligations she had undertaken.
Thus was established, by compact between the States, a Government with definite objects and powers, limited to the express words of the grant. This limitation left the whole remaining mass of power subject to the clause reserving it to the States or to the people, and rendered unnecessary any specification of reserved rights.
We hold that the Government thus established is subject to the two great principles asserted in the Declaration of Independence; and we hold further, that the mode of its formation subjects it to a third fundamental principle, namely: the law of compact. We maintain that in every compact between two or more parties, the obligation is mutual; that the failure of one of the contracting parties to perform a material part of the agreement, entirely releases the obligation of the other; and that where no arbiter is provided, each party is remitted to his own judgment to determine the fact of failure, with all its consequences.
In the present case, that fact is established with certainty. We assert that fourteen of the States have deliberately refused, for years past, to fulfill their constitutional obligations, and we refer to their own Statutes for the proof.
The Constitution of the United States, in its fourth Article, provides as follows: "No person held to service or labor in one State, under the laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in consequence of any law or regulation therein, be discharged from such service or labor, but shall be delivered up, on claim of the party to whom such service or labor may be due."
This stipulation was so material to the compact, that without it that compact would not have been made. The greater number of the contracting parties held slaves, and they had previously evinced their estimate of the value of such a stipulation by making it a condition in the Ordinance for the government of the territory ceded by Virginia, which now composes the States north of the Ohio River.
The same article of the Constitution stipulates also for rendition by the several States of fugitives from justice from the other States.
The General Government, as the common agent, passed laws to carry into effect these stipulations of the States. For many years these laws were executed. But an increasing hostility on the part of the non-slaveholding States to the institution of slavery, has led to a disregard of their obligations, and the laws of the General Government have ceased to effect the objects of the Constitution. The States of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa, have enacted laws which either nullify the Acts of Congress or render useless any attempt to execute them. In many of these States the fugitive is discharged from service or labor claimed, and in none of them has the State Government complied with the stipulation made in the Constitution. The State of New Jersey, at an early day, passed a law in conformity with her constitutional obligation; but the current of anti-slavery feeling has led her more recently to enact laws which render inoperative the remedies provided by her own law and by the laws of Congress. In the State of New York even the right of transit for a slave has been denied by her tribunals; and the States of Ohio and Iowa have refused to surrender to justice fugitives charged with murder, and with inciting servile insurrection in the State of Virginia. Thus the constituted compact has been deliberately broken and disregarded by the non-slaveholding States, and the consequence follows that South Carolina is released from her obligation.
The ends for which the Constitution was framed are declared by itself to be "to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity."
These ends it endeavored to accomplish by a Federal Government, in which each State was recognized as an equal, and had separate control over its own institutions. The right of property in slaves was recognized by giving to free persons distinct political rights, by giving them the right to represent, and burthening them with direct taxes for three-fifths of their slaves; by authorizing the importation of slaves for twenty years; and by stipulating for the rendition of fugitives from labor.
We affirm that these ends for which this Government was instituted have been defeated, and the Government itself has been made destructive of them by the action of the non-slaveholding States. Those States have assume the right of deciding upon the propriety of our domestic institutions; and have denied the rights of property established in fifteen of the States and recognized by the Constitution; they have denounced as sinful the institution of slavery; they have permitted open establishment among them of societies, whose avowed object is to disturb the peace and to eloign the property of the citizens of other States. They have encouraged and assisted thousands of our slaves to leave their homes; and those who remain, have been incited by emissaries, books and pictures to servile insurrection.
For twenty-five years this agitation has been steadily increasing, until it has now secured to its aid the power of the common Government. Observing the *forms* [emphasis in the original] of the Constitution, a sectional party has found within that Article establishing the Executive Department, the means of subverting the Constitution itself. A geographical line has been drawn across the Union, and all the States north of that line have united in the election of a man to the high office of President of the United States, whose opinions and purposes are hostile to slavery. He is to be entrusted with the administration of the common Government, because he has declared that that "Government cannot endure permanently half slave, half free," and that the public mind must rest in the belief that slavery is in the course of ultimate extinction.
This sectional combination for the submersion of the Constitution, has been aided in some of the States by elevating to citizenship, persons who, by the supreme law of the land, are incapable of becoming citizens; and their votes have been used to inaugurate a new policy, hostile to the South, and destructive of its beliefs and safety.
On the 4th day of March next, this party will take possession of the Government. It has announced that the South shall be excluded from the common territory, that the judicial tribunals shall be made sectional, and that a war must be waged against slavery until it shall cease throughout the United States.
The guaranties of the Constitution will then no longer exist; the equal rights of the States will be lost. The slaveholding States will no longer have the power of self-government, or self-protection, and the Federal Government will have become their enemy.
Sectional interest and animosity will deepen the irritation, and all hope of remedy is rendered vain, by the fact that public opinion at the North has invested a great political error with the sanction of more erroneous religious belief.
We, therefore, the People of South Carolina, by our delegates in Convention assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, have solemnly declared that the Union heretofore existing between this State and the other States of North America, is dissolved, and that the State of South Carolina has resumed her position among the nations of the world, as a separate and independent State; with full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent States may of right do.
Adopted December 24, 1860________________________________________


After graduating from the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) in 1848, Robert E. Rodes accepted a position at the same school as an assistant professor until 1851. He then pursued a profession as civil engineer. Just before the outbreak of the war, Rodes had accepted a professorship at VMI. When the war began, he entered the Confederate Army as a Colonel with the 5th Alabama Infantry regiment. His actions at the First Battle of Manassas led to him being promoted to Brigadier General on October 21, 1861.
Rodes was wounded at the Battle of Seven Pines (May 31-June 1, 1862) and at the Battle of Antietam (September 17, 1862). At the latter, his division held the center at "Bloody Lane." At the Battle of Chancellorsville (May 1-4, 1863), he again distinguished himself by leading Lieutenant General "Stonewall" Jackson's famous flank attack, an action which earned him promotion to Major General.
At the Battle of Monocacy, Rodes' Division fought at the Jug Bridge on the Baltimore Pike. Throughout the day, fighting was sustained with each side taking and giving ground. Late in the day, Rodes' forces attacked the Union line in an attempt to cut off the Union retreat. The Jug Bridge was taken along with a large number of prisoners, but Rodes was unable to capture the main body of troops that had already retreated down the Baltimore Pike.
While directing a counter attack at the Third Battle of Winchester (September 19, 1864) which enabled the beaten Confederate Army to retreat, Rodes was mortally wounded. He is buried in Lynchburg, Virginia.

He is the grandson of Joel Yancy and Anne Burton and the 3rd great grandson of Robert Burton and Priscilla Farrar.

In May 1861, he was commissioned as Colonel with the 5th Alabama Infantry Regiment. By October 1861, he was appointed Brigadier General, and he led his brigade at Fair Oaks, Gaines's Mill, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville. He was promoted to Major General in May 1863, by the dying request of General Stonewall Jackson. General Rodes commanded his division at Gettysburg, the Wilderness, and Spotsylvania. He went to Shenandoah Valley in June 1864, where he served under Early and fought at Kernstown and elsewhere. He died from exploded shrapnel that struck his head at Winchester, VA, on September 19, 1864.

He is my Great Great Great Uncle!

I am a Southerner . . .
I won’t apologize
I won’t be reconstructed.
I will not surrender
My identity, my heritage.
I believe in the Constitution,
In States’ Rights,
That the government should be the
Servant, not the Master of the people.
I believe in the right to bear arms,
The right to be left alone.

I am a Southerner . . .
The spirit of my Confederate ancestor
Boils in my blood.
He fought
Not for what he thought was right,
But for what was right.
Not for slavery,
But to resist tyranny, Machiavellian laws,
Oppressive taxation, invasion of his land,
For the right to be left alone.

I am a Southerner
A rebel,
Seldom politically correct,
At times belligerent.
I don’t like Lincoln, Grant, Sherman,
Or modern neocon politicians like them.
I like hunting and fishing, Charlie Daniels,
The Bonnie Blue and “Dixie.”
I still believe in chivalry and civility.

I am a face in the Southern collage of
Gentlemen and scholars, belles and writers,
Soldiers and sharecroppers, Cajuns and Creoles,
Tejanos and IsleƱos, Celts and Germans,
Gullah and Geechi, freedmen and slaves.
We are all the South.

The South . . . My home, my beautiful home,
My culture, my destiny, my heart.
I am a Southerner.
Deo Vindice!

He struggles across the field
In his suit of butternut gray.
He's already wounded twice,
But that won't keep him from the fray.
They call him, Johnny Reb,
And that's what he's proud to be.
He'll gladly give up his life
To keep his pride and liberty.

He stumbled and he fell,
Yet, rose again to climb the hill.
The courage within his heart
Is more abundant than the blood he'll spill.

He lets loose one last Rebel yell
And falls upon his hated foe.
Another ball takes his life,
But he won't go alone to that home of the soul.

Just like his Rebel spirit,
That rises to live again on high.
The South will rise once more
Because it's spirit will never die
