    • In response to Mr. Myron Penn:

      It was the Southern Soldier that was the determining factor of defeating Great Britain in the war for Americans Independence. General Cornwallis surrendered in Virginia. Prodigy of the gallant men and women who fought in the war for Independence fought again in another war with England in 1812. It was the Southern men of many Races, who with Andrew Jackson defeated the English Army at New Orleans and secured U.S,’s claim to the land of the Louisiana Purchase. When their lands were invaded in 1861 the grandsons of the American War for Independence gathered again to defend home, family, and fireside. In their ranks were Asians, Hispanics, Hebrews, Africans Americans, American Indians, Cubans, and other Nationalities along with many Northern citizens. A note overlooked by most historians is there were more slave states in the U.S. than in the Confederacy when Lincoln called for the invasion of Southern States. Also, more slave owners fought for the U.S. than for the Confederacy. Remember, Delaware was the last State to legally have slaves and Massachusetts was the first Colony to have slaving laws for Whites, American Indians, and Blacks. One should read what was said and published in the 1864 Democrat National Convention in Chicago.

      As for the Spanish American war,” Every soldier’s grave made during our unfortunate civil war [sic] is a tribute to American valor… And the time has now come… when in the spirit of fraternity we should share in the care of the graves of the Confederate soldiers… and if it needed further justification it is found in the gallant loyalty to the Union and the flag so conspicuously shown in the year just passed by the sons and grandsons of those heroic dead.” …President William McKinley, 14 December 1898. Every war that the U.S. has entered, the Southern Soldiers have proven a great defender of America. At D-Day on the beaches of the war head, it was the descendants of the old Stonewall brigade that first broke through.

      Today, we the Sons of Confederate Veterans honor all our Veterans and many in our ranks are Veterans. We the Sons of Confederate Veterans are outraged at the act of Myron Penn of dishonoring Southern Veterans graves. Federal law P.L.38, 59congress Chap. 631-34 Stat. 56 passed by the U.S. Congress places Confederate Graves with same rights, respect, and privileges as all U.S. Veterans.

      Where is the unity, tolerance, and togetherness in denying free speech to those who wish to honor their forefathers? The Hebrew, American Indian, African American, Hispanic, American Cuban, and many others along with many “Whites” who accepted their responsibility to maintain liberty are worthy to be recognized and honored.

  1. “At D-Day on the beaches of the war head, it was the descendants of the old Stonewall brigade that first broke through.” Flattery will get you everywhere, but, I seriously doubt that a limp wristed let’s buy everyone a Coke or a Pepsi response to Mayor Penn is going to accomplish what we want.

  2. ‘Never forgive. never forget. ‘
    ‘Never let a serious crisis go to waste.’

    Use their own damned mantras to bring them down.
    Just sayin’…
    Deo Volente.

  3. For whatever it is worth : it is not for the SCV to perpetuate our culture, but, us.

    Ownership (or physical presence)as they say, is 9/10s the law.

    If we, for all intents and purposes, abandon an area, then whether it is to the inevitable coercion of Mother Nature and Father Time, or a new race coming in, those monuments to our ancestors will soon enough be gone.

    Perhaps those monuments SEEM dead, though, they are, in fact, alive – and that being so, they need life, the life and effort of their descendants to perpetuate them. We Southerners MUST stand fast where we are, bite the bullet, and not run away.

    Or, if we do, we must learn to live with a lot of this…
