  • 150 years on, Sherman’s March to Sea still vivid
    Sherman’s name still evokes epithets - villain, war criminal, devil - for the horrors he countenanced, and even commanded. Sherman’s men ransacked houses, stole property, set fires. It was an unusually cold winter, harvests were taken or destroyed - “and there was no making up a crop.” People were left to starve. She winced relating stories of soldiers wantonly killing animals they couldn’t carry away. - (Confederacy)

  • Gadsden teenager dies after vehicle strikes Emma Sansom monument
    The woman, Jaquela Robinson, was driving a 1989 Chevrolet S-10 pickup. "There didn't seem to be any damage to the monument."

Nathan Bedford Forrest cross flooded Black Creek in pursuit of Union forces. - (Confederacy)

Coded American Civil War message in bottle deciphered
A message in a bottle delivered to a Confederate general during the American Civil War has been deciphered, 147 years after it was written. In the encrypted message, a commander tells Gen John Pemberton that no reinforcements are available to help him defend Vicksburg, Mississippi. "You can expect no help from this side of the river," says the message, which was deciphered by codebreakers. The text is dated 4 July 1863 - the day Vicksburg fell to Union forces. The small bottle was given to the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, Virginia, by a former Confederate soldier in 1896.

Confederate Sailor Buried in Ala.
CSS AlabamaMOBILE, Ala. -- The remains of a Confederate sailor, recovered several years ago from a shipwreck at the bottom of the English Channel, were buried Saturday in a handmade wooden coffin pulled by a horse-drawn caisson. The unidentified sailor's skeletal remains were found on the underside of a cannon raised from the wreck of the CSS Alabama in about 200 feet of water. The Confederate warship was sunk in the channel off the coast of France on June 19, 1864, by the Union warship USS Kearsarge. More than 400 artifacts have been recovered from the site by American and French divers. The CSS Alabama had a crew of about 120 members, and most were rescued by boaters in the area, but about a dozen drowned or were never heard from again, said Robert Edington, a Mobile attorney and president of the CSS Alabama Association. Saturday's funeral procession began downtown at the site of the statue of Adm. Raphael Semmes, who was the commanding officer of the CSS Alabama, and ended at Magnolia Cemetery where the sailor was buried. The sailor's coffin was accompanied by members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. The group, which was holding its annual convention in Mobile, arranged the funeral with the support of heritage groups and individuals. - (Confederacy)

Praise For Lee And Jackson - by Chuck Baldwin
January is often referred to as "Generals Month" as no less than four famous Confederate Generals claimed January as their birth month: James Longstreet (Jan. 8, 1821), Robert E. Lee (Jan. 19, 1807), Thomas Jonathan Jackson (Jan. 21, 1824), and George Pickett (Jan. 28, 1825). Two of these men, Lee and Jackson, are particularly noteworthy. This is especially true, as this year will mark General Lee's two hundredth birthday.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- When the first U.S. flag known as Old Glory was last flown prominently here, the nation was embroiled in the Civil War. Now, more than 140 years after the flag became a legend when it was flown atop the state Capitol to celebrate the capture of the city from Confederate forces in 1862, the flag has returned to Tennessee.

Girl Sues School Over Confederate Clothes
Candice Michele HardwickS.C. -- The family of a high school sophomore has filed a suit seeking to force school officials to allow the girl to wear clothing with Confederate flag images. The federal lawsuit was filed Thursday by the North Carolina-based Southern Legal Resource Center, a Confederate heritage legal advocacy group. Candice Hardwick, 15, said she wants to wear the Confederate emblem to pay tribute to an ancestor who fought for the South in the Civil War. Latta High School officials say the symbol, which many people consider racially charged, is disruptive in school, and that district policies allow principals to ban such clothing.

Vanderbilt U. Loses 'Confederate' Bid
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Vanderbilt University would violate a decades-old contract if it stripped the word "Confederate" from the name of a dormitory built with the help of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, a court ruling released Wednesday said.
The heritage group donated a third of the building's cost. In return, the name Confederate Memorial Hall was chiseled into stone over the main entrance. The state appeals court said Vanderbilt must leave the name intact or pay the group the current value of the $50,000 given when the building was constructed in 1935. It was not immediately clear what that amount would be in today's dollars.

"Their cause was just," she said. - (Tyrone N. Butts)

And I don't want no pardon
For anything I've done.

The Great Seal of the Confederacy
The Great Seal of the Confederacy, or "Deo Vindice" seal
was smuggled through the Union blockade, along with its pressing equipment, during the war. It proudly displays the Confederate motto of Deo Vindice, which is Latin for "God will Vindicate."
In keeping with the Southerners belief that their struggle was continuing the beliefs of America's founding fathers, the seal displays a mounted General George Washington in the center of the seal.
