Letter To Russ Boles Defending Our Heritage

Dear Commissioner Boles,
In 1916, the United Daughters of the Confederacy erected a monument at the Williamson County courthouse to honor those who died in defense of their homes, families, and country. It seems that there has been an ongoing debate on the removal of this monument for several years. Only the historically ignorant who have no clue about the truth of our history would consider such an erroneous move as this. The cultural Marxist (cultural genocide) crowd in this country have been waging a war against our history, heritage, symbols, and culture for a number of years now, based on the misconception that our Confederate ancestors fought for the protection and perpetuation of slavery, while the “righteous and moral” Yankees fought to end the institution of slavery. This is the rewritten historical myth that has been poured into the heads of our school children since Reconstruction.
Our Confederate ancestors fought an illegal invasion of murderers, rapists, looters, and arsonists sent into the South by the tyrant Lincoln. Lincoln waged an illegal war to force the legally seceded states back into a union they wanted no part of so he could continue the collection of excessive tariffs from them. The South was paying 85% of the federal revenues (wealth redistribution) which was going for “internal improvements” in the North, such as railroads, industry, and banking. The South realized very little out of this. The truth is that the North would go bankrupt without the South. Our whitewashed “history” does not teach us this. Our Confederate heroes are labelled as “traitors”, when the truth is that they were fighting to preserve the U.S. Constitution and the Republic of our Founders, which Lincoln destroyed.
Most people are unaware that there were still more than 429,000 slaves in the Union after the South seceded, so, if the North was fighting to “free the slaves”, as we are wrongly taught, then why did they not first free the ones that they held in bondage? And why did the Radical Republicans refuse to pass an amendment in 1864 that would have abolished slavery? This did not happen until 1865, eight months after the war ended.
The war on everything Southern and Confederate is fueled by ignorance and the ingestion of false history. If the truth were commonly known about our history, we would not be seeing the tearing down of our monuments, or the name changes in our schools, parks, and streets. U.S. Public Law 85-425: Sec. 410 Approved 23 May 1958 recognizes Confederate soldiers as equal to U.S. soldiers. That being the case, no Confederate soldier should be dishonored by the defacing or removal of a Confederate monument, nor should any school, park, street, or military base have its name changed due to it being named after a Confederate soldier. I hope that you will do all in your power to see that this monument remains in its rightful place.
