The Commander's Page.
Welcome once again to all our members and supporters of the CSA-E, and not forgetting our friends, too numerous to mention.
Well, most of you will have heard (some even participated in) the trouble that the CSA-E have been having in trying to get a non-official North Carolina flag to fly for the locally born General Leventhorpe, CSA, in Exmouth, Devonshire, England.
Our apologies go out to Mr. Howell, of Exmouth, who was mis-quoted by the press,
for what he was 'SUPPOSED TO HAVE SAID' in regards to the raising of the unofficial flag.
Even I was mis-quoted as using the term 'American War of Independence' to do with the unofficial flag, and because of that, someone had written in to the newspaper and referred to us as 'potty'. I have sent an article to the newspaper explaining why some have got the wrong idea about us.
I have applied for permission to the council to allow the official North Carolina State flag to fly in place of the first choice, as yet no reply has been received.
To explain my reasons for choosing the NC State flag has to be, to keep the council members happy, and have a flag that cannot be classed as 'Racist', but still have a flag flying in memory of the General.
It was also mentioned in the article, that I should fly the flag for the official end of the war. With this I have to disagree. The CSA-E have designated the month of April as our History and Heritage Month, and this is when we would like the proposed flags flown.
And with that, I will end this months Cmdr.'s Page, and wish you all the very best.
