Preserving Our Heritage for Future Generations

 

THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES
Remembering The Confederacy

"If I ever disown, repudiate, or apologize for the Cause for which
Lee fought and Jackson died, let the lightnings of Heaven rend me, and the scorn of all good men and true women be my portion. Sun, Moon, Stars, all fall on me when I cease to love the Confederacy. 'Tis the cause, not the fate of the Cause, that is glorious!" 
Maj. R.E. Wilson, CSA

"Surrender means that the history of this heroic struggle will be 
written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern school teachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the War; will be impressed by all the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit subjects for derision."
General Pat Cleburne, CSA

 

 

 

"Let us be certain that our children know that the War Between The States 
was not a contest for the preservation of slavery, as some would have them to 
believe, but that it was a great struggle for the maintenance of 
Constitutional rights, and that men who fought
Were warriors tried and true,
Who bore the flags of a Nation's trust,
And fell in a cause, though lost, still just,
And died for me and you."
J. Taylor Ellyson
Confederate veteran and post-war mayor of Richmond, Virginia
