ConfederateVeterans Memorial Park Dedication - Tampa, Florida


Saturday, 25 April 2009

The Gen. Jubal A. Early Camp # 556 Sons of Confederate Veterans and the Florida Division SCV are proud to announce the date of the dedication ceremony of the Tampa Flag and Monument Site. Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 25, 2009.

Remember, that this monument and flag site is really much more. It rises to the level of a park. But not just an ordinary park but, truly, a world class and state of the art display of Southern Heritage. This will be a tourist attraction that will dumbfound and befuddle the “powers that be” in the community. Not just the local Tampa Bay community but communities across the land. The nation has voted for change and change it will be. No longer will we be only reactive in our behavior. This is a first magnitude proactive effort that has brought the attention of the nation to bear upon the Sons of Confederate Veterans. For a change, this community is asking to talk and to dialogue with us and the pattern is setting a blueprint for the rest of the American South.

For the day of the dedication we have reserved a great 3 acre plot of land immediately across the road from the actual park site. The site has room enough for a large revival type tent, many sutlers and venders, a couple of hundred re-enactors (living historians) in tents and 10 to 15 cannons. This is and will be a well planned and orchestrated happening. On the day of the event, music and speakers will begin at 10 AM and will continue until 2 PM. At 2 PM the dedication service will begin. Pastor John Weaver will be the keynote speaker. Also, Donnie Kennedy will be one of the speakers. The actual park site will be closed until the dedication service ends with the hoisting of the new “world’s largest flying” Confederate Battle Flag, 40 by 70 feet on the 139 foot flagpole which flies at the junction of two major interstates.

Monument inscription opportunities are still available as well as the following 20 by 30 inch bronze plaques.
