I thank our commander for that Forward,
which yet again shows the way forward.
Since our first newsletter a
great deal has happened. The most noticable being our new www site at
We have received some
donations and contributions and those who have been so kind as to support
Southern Heritage preservation here have had their names placed on the ROLL OF
HONOUR at our www site. Two people have been of such great assistance I feel
they just have to be mentioned here also. They are MRS PRISCILLA SQUIRES of the
CSA-HPS of Texas, who has really taken a passionate interest in our grave
marking activities here and whose contribution can only be described as
'substantial'. Someone else who deserves special merit is Ethel Taylor, also of
the North American continent, who has given us tremendous service in organizing
and producing our www site.
Our grave marking activities has seen markers
placed to both John Tallentire and James Weadley. This would not have been
possible without the financial contributions we received from America. In the
near future, we hope to be able to have placed markers to Col R A Smith of the
10th Miss Inf, and Capt S Winthrop of the ANV, as well as having the gravestone
of Llewellyn Saunderson, ADC to Fitzhugh Lee, restored.
But……..we are not
just restoring gravesites here, we are active in making sure that people here
realise that our CS ancestors were honourable men and not the criminals that
groups like the NAACP would have people believe.
About 2 months ago, I
heard of a work, ( whose title and author are unfit to be mentioned here), about
a fictitious America where the South had won the war. The America it portrayed
was very racist and was a place where women were subdued. Apart from being
nonsense and offensive, it was also pure fantasy, only fantasy with a sick
edge….Then I thought, what if the South HAD won? …The way the future would have
gone is pure conjecture, but is my version more likely to have been the result
than the work of the author previous referred to ?….Have a read of my 'post war
prediction' and let me know.
1864- After two great victories on the
outskirts of Washington, the North sues for peace.
1865 - Charles Jennison
and Jim Lane hung for war crimes in Missouri.
1866-The countries of the world
follows the Confederacy's example and bans International slave
1869-The native Americans who supported the South are given their
own state, theirs for all time, never to be taken from them.
1914 -World War
avoided as America has shown how different states can live in harmony on the
1933- The worlds largest statue is dedicated outside Richmond,
it is 200' high and depicts a white man and a black man in CS uniform stood
1941-Japan does not attack America, as Europe is still at peace,
and besides, war with the United States would bring the Southern states to her
The chances of this happening are in my opinion far greater than
the events mentioned in 'that other work'.
