Moving the Confederate Monument

To: Larry Sparks –
Interim Chancellor
University of Mississippi

Dear Mr. Sparks,

This letter is in reference to your moving the Confederate statue from the campus of Ole Miss. It is extremely sad and disheartening to see Southerners attacking their good and honorable heritage due to the many decades of false history that has been indoctrinated into them. The common phrases were hear are, “ The South fought to protect slavery; Confederates were traitors; The North fought to free the slaves”.  All of these statements have been easily debunked.  The South did not fight “to protect slavery”.  Had it wanted to do so, all it had to do was stay in the Union where it was already protected.  The South refused to return to the Union and ratify the Corwin Amendment which would have forever protected slavery. The Confederates where not “traitors” as we hear from historically ignorant people.  Not one Confederate was charged or put on trial for treason.  President Jefferson Davis waited two years in prison for a trial he wanted, but U.S. Supreme Court Justice Salmon P. Chase said that the U.S. could not try any Confederates because secession was not illegal.  He stated that what was won on the battlefield would be lost in the courtroom. The false belief that “The North fought to free the slaves” is beyond ludicrous. If the North really wanted to “free the slaves”, why did it not first free the more than 429,000 slaves that were in the Union AFTER the South seceded?  Why did President Lincoln countermand General Fremont’s order in Missouri ordering emancipated slaves to be returned to their masters?  Had Lincoln not illegally invaded the South, there would have been no war.  His war was all about money, power, and greed, not slavery. He is responsible for the mess we have today; a large, powerful, centralized government.

Mr. Sparks, I find it ironic that in your letter to the students, faculty, and staff concerning the moving of the Confederate monument that you made the following statement:

“I wish you all a successful academic year as we continue efforts to make our campus a positive, productive, and welcoming educational environment for every student who joins our community of scholars seeking truth, knowledge, and wisdom.”

Just what “truth” would that be, sir?  The “truth” of rewritten history that has been shoved down our throats for more than 150 years?  The truth is not taught in our schools and universities, because if it were, we would not have all this cultural genocide taking place everywhere across the South in the removal of monuments, or the changing of the names of schools, parks, and streets.

Another ironic piece that I would like to point out is this; in “The Creed of The University of Mississippi” it says “I believe in academic honesty”. Really?  How about teaching honest history then, instead of the Marxist rewritten version which if full of lies and slander.

Our Confederate ancestors were brave and honorable Christian men who fought against overwhelming odds to defend their homes and families from an illegal invasion of murderers, looters, arsonists, and rapists.  The Union army committed countless atrocities upon the civilians of the South, but the Confederates did not do this to civilians of the North.

The South was paying 85% of the federal revenues in the way of excessive tariffs and getting almost nothing in return.  These revenues went to “internal improvements” in the North; railroads, industry, and banking.  Lincoln could not bear to lose his “cash cow” so he invaded to force the legally seceded South back into the Union at the point of bayonets so he could continue this wealth redistribution. That was the main purpose of the war.  It had nothing to do with slavery.  Oh, Lincoln falsely made it about slavery with his Emancipation Proclamation (which freed not one single slave) when the war was going badly for the Union. This was an attempt to keep Europe out of it by proclaiming the Union was fighting for “moral reasons”, and to start a slave uprising in the South, which did not happen. Lincoln was a tyrant and a dictator who shut down over 300 Northern newspapers and illegally imprisoned thousands of people who voiced their disapproval of his illegal war.

The truth is easy enough to find, but don’t look in high school or university text books which have been written by Yankees.  It is way past time that we put the myths aside and get the truth in front of the public. All this war against the Confederate Battle flag and Confederate monuments has got to stop, and would not even be happening if everyone knew the truth of our history. It is particularly sad to see Southerners take up the banner of cultural genocide and destroying their own heritage. If you had a Confederate ancestor come back to you today, what do you think he would say?

South So Racist--NOT

The South was so racist that…

That Antebellum New Orleans had the largest and most prosperous community of free persons of color in the nation who were often educated and middle-class property owners.

Jefferson Davis and his wife were so racist they adopted a black boy that Mrs. Davis rescued from a brutal Negro guardian on the streets of Richmond. Jim Limber was raised as their own, with their own children, in the Confederate White House.

Mr. Davis was such a brutal racist he sent his slave Ben Montgomery to Ohio (a free state) with $8000 to purchase a cotton gin. Ben returned with the gin and took care of the Davis's plantation while he was away during the Mexican War and later during the War for Southern Independence.

Diarist Mary Chestnut of South Carolina was so racist that after the war, facing financial ruin, she was still caring for 16 elderly former slaves that had already been emancipated...

The Confederate Army was so racist it was made up of Whites, Mexicans, Blacks, Jews, Asians and Native Americans who by the way had representation in the Confederate Congress.

The South was so racist that when French Author Alexis de Tocqueville visited the north and south he states in “Democracy in America” that, ironically the problem of race seemed to be far worse in the non-slave owning states than in slave owning states. Whites refuse to work side by side with blacks; however, this was commonplace in the South. He also noted the general attitude in New England was, that all blacks were aliens and should be deported or colonized back to Africa.


Oh, almost forgot, what was the North's race policy? Many northern states banned free blacks from moving into their states with the intention of residing there (including Lincoln's Illinois)...why do you suppose the Underground Railroad ended in Canada?

By Colleen Alexander

The South and the Confederate States of America have been harshly discriminated against and positive historical facts and figures have intentionally been suppressed. Dishonest Northern historians have unfairly caused Southern and Confederate history and its heroes, monuments, memorials, and flags to be regulated to a role of less importance than deserved in American history and to be viewed in a negative perspective by much of the American public.

U.S president Woodrow Wilson is quoted as saying “the role of slavery became the proclaimed cause of the Civil War because it was necessary to put the South at a moral disadvantage by transforming the contest from a war for Independence into a war waged for the maintenance and extension of slavery”. If slavery was all the Southern states wanted they could have kept it without a war or firing a shot. The North offered the South the Corwin Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in March 1861 that would have made slavery permanently legal in America if they would rejoin the union. The South refused and the Constitution of the Confederate States of America banned the international slave trade. Most educated Southerners were in favor of gradual orderly emancipation which would have prevented segregation and Jim Crow laws which were based on Northern black codes.

The words of Confederate General Patrick R. Cleburne who was killed at the battle of Franklin Tennessee on November 30, 1864 are becoming true:

“Every man should endeavor to understand the meaning of subjugation before it is too late. It means 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 the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit objects for derision.”

Political correctness and Socialist Marxist Revisionism are attacking everything Southern and Confederate on national, state, and local levels all across America
The Confederate flag represents honor, faith, courage, dignity, integrity, chivalry, Christian values, respect for womanhood, strong family ties, patriotism, self- reliance, limited constitutional federal government, states rights, and belief in the free enterprise system. It symbolizes the noble spirit of the Southern people, the rich heritage, the traditions of the South and the dynamic and vigorous Southern culture. No other symbol so proudly says “Dixie” as the Cross of St. Andrew (Confederate Battle Flag) waving in the breeze. Liberals have falsely indoctrinated many black Americans to believe it represents racism, bigotry, and a painful reminder of slavery, but white Christian Southerners who fly the Confederate Battle Flag are not the enemy of responsible Black Americans who are working to better themselves.

The Confederate flag is the last flag to represent the concept of local control of ones’ life in America. In a larger sense it represents the same values and principles as the original U.S. Betsy Ross Flag: Limited Constitutional Federal Government, States Rights, Resistance to Tyranny, and Christian Principles and Values. Thus it represents “government of the people, by the people, and for the people with the consent of the governed”.

The Confederate flag is an internationally recognized symbol of resistance to tyranny. That is why it was flying over the Berlin Wall when it was being torn down in 1989 and has been flown by numerous countries or provinces seeking independence.

It reminds knowledgeable Americans that government is to be held accountable for its actions, and if those actions are viewed as not being in the best interest of the people, there is a price to be paid for it. This fact has not been lost upon the Socialist, Communist, liberal left and that is why they have spent inordinate amounts of money and energy trying to suppress this powerful symbol of freedom. The Confederate battle flag is a Christian symbol and that is why proponents of Secular Humanism (the belief that there is no God and man, science, and government can solve all problems) oppose it.

The flag also represents the valor and sacrifice of our Southern ancestors in their quest to gain independence and recognition as a sovereign nation. Confederate soldiers displayed tremendous bravery in the face of overwhelming odds and blatant tyranny and aggression on behalf of the Yankee government that invaded the Southern homeland. It was, is, and will continue to be the flag of the region Southerners call home, the Southland. We are Americans, true, but we are also proud Southerners.
