Monument to Delaware Confederates Unveiled Successfully May 12th

Nearly 300 members of the general public and invited guests attended a Delaware Confederate soldiers monument unveiling ceremony sponsored by the “Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 2068” on May 12th at the Nutter B. Marvel Museum in Georgetown, Delaware. The monument honors the state’s citizens and soldiers who supported or enlisted in Southern armies during the “War Between the States” 1861-1865.

The day’s highlights included proclamations by Georgetown, Delaware Mayor Mike Wyatt and Delaware Governor Ruth Ann Minner declaring that May 12-18 is “Confederate History Week” in the town and throughout the state of Delaware. There were musket volleys, cannon salutes, a wreath laying ceremony, and descendants of several of the soldiers on hand to witness the event. Dirt from each of the Confederate states was spread at the base of the monument to give it a firm foundation in Southern soil. The band “Breaking Nu Ground” performed afterwards to entertain the crowd.

Noted Southern Patriot H.K. Edgerton led the crowd in singing “Dixie” and performed his rendition of “I am their Flag”. He spoke passionately about the need to preserve Southern History.

The monument features the names of over 70 Delawareans who fought in Southern Armies or supported the Confederate war effort including Lt. General Leonidas Polk and Delaware Governor William Henry Harrison Ross. There is a 9 foot obelisk and it is flanked by 25 foot flag poles on each side, one featuring the Delaware flag and the other featuring the Confederate battle flag. A Confederate battle flag is inscribed upon the obelisk and features a 14th star – for Delaware.

Delaware, a border state during the war, never left the Union, but it is estimated up to as many as 2,000 of her native sons joined Southern armies. There are monuments honoring those who joined the Federal armies, at Gettysburg and Sharpsburg Battlefields as well as other places, but none – until now – recognizing the sacrifices of Delawareans who supported the Cause of independence and efforts of the Confederate States between 1861-1865.

More names of many Delaware’s Confederate soldiers will be added to the monument as research reveals their identities. Anyone with names of possible Delaware Confederate soldiers is asked to contact the Monument Committee through the “Delaware Grays” website at

The monument is located at the non-profit Nutter B. Marvel Museum, 510 South Bedford Street, Georgetown. The museum includes a collection of historic buildings and horse drawn carriages as well as thousands of historical photographs, newspaper clippings, books and other memorabilia about Georgetown, Sussex County, and Delaware.

Frankly Speaking - Frank Gillispie

To The Madison County Journal - Danielsville, Georgia

A pendulum is a wonderful thing. Anytime it is pushed out of equilibrium,
it seeks to return to its position of rest. But in doing so, it swings to
the opposite direction of the original deflection by almost the same
distance. This applies as well to many areas of human endeavor, including
politics and history.

For the last 150 years, the radical, northern, leftist sets have been
distorting history in order to justify the American tragedy called,
incorrectly, the Civil War. But finally, their grip on the pendulum of
history is starting to slip. And unless we take steps to settle it on the
truth, it is likely to create as much false history about the North as has
been created about the south.

At this time, the attacks on Southern culture based on false history is
starting to slip. A number of books and films that show the falsity of
current historical teaching has appeared on the market. Some of them are
coming from Northern teachers and journalist.

I bring to you a list of several recent books supporting the southern
cause. The most recent is entitled “War Crimes Against Southern Civilians”
by Walter Brian Cisco. This book takes the same historical documents used
in the recent History Channel’s two hour effort to show General Sherman as
a good guy, and revealed a massive, deliberate assault on southern women and
children. In addition, Sisco points out the inhuman attacks on southern
civilians in Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Alabama and Louisiana. He
devotes a chapter to General Benjamin F. Butler’s infamous order that any
New Orleans lady who showed “disrespect” for union forces was to be
considered a “lady of the street” and used accordingly.

Another recent book entitled “Complicity - How the North Promoted, Prolonged
and Profited from Slavery. This book was compiled by three journalist from
The Hartford Courant. Among the startling information in this volume is the
fact that a ship based in New York City, sailing under the Union flag for at
least part of its voyage, was still smuggling slaves to Cuba in 1862. That
was well after the “war to end slavery” was well underway.

They also document the roll the slave trade played in developing the wealth
of New England. They referenced the Brown family of Providence Rhode Island
and the conflict between the slaving brother and the abolitionist brother.
They repeated the well known fact that slave money contributed to the
founding of Brown University.

The connection between Providence and the slave trade is clearly portrayed
in the book “Sons of Providence - The Brown Brothers, the Slave Trade and
the American Revolution. Written by New England native Charles Rappleye,
the book describes the growth of the slave trade and the infamous “Middle
Passage” during which Northern based ships ran a triangular trade route from
their home ports carrying rum and other commodities to Africa, then a load
of slaves to the Caribbean and back to their home port with a cargo
including molasses to be used to make more rum.

I also recommend “When in the Course of Human Events, Arguing the Case for
Southern Secession” by Charles Adams, “The Real Lincoln” by Thomas J
DiLorenzo and “North Against South” by Ludwell H. Johnson.

The truth of history is finally being revealed. Those of you who love the
South should seek out and read these books. The truth will set you free.
