SCV Commemorate Jefferson Davis Inauguration Feb. 19th in Montgomery, Ala.

19 Feb

As we all face enslavement by the federal gov.  Those who support the tyranny of the federal gov. and their revisionist history will bark for days about this commemoration.  Let us remember and keep freedom alive for our children.

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Hundreds of men in Civil War uniforms marched past the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s church Saturday to commemorate the inauguration of the Confederate president 150 years ago in a city that no longer rolls out the red carpet for them.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans turned back time to recreate the festivities surrounding Jefferson Davis taking the oath of office on Feb. 18, 1861. They surrounded the bronze star on the Capitol steps that marks the spot where Davis took leadership of a war that still stirs emotions in a state proclaimed on license plates as the “Heart of Dixie.”

Not every African-American shared that view. Barbara Marthal of Mt. Juliet, Tenn., put on her hoop skirt and marched in the parade to honor a cousin who fought as a slave.

“There are few people of African descent who are aware of how many people of African descent supported the Confederacy,” she said. “This is our history and we should be proud of it.”

Sons of Confederate Veterans members, who trace their history to ancestors who fought in the war, call it the “War Between the States” or the “War of Secession” rather than the Civil War. They say its origins have been distorted by modern historians.

SCV member Randy Beeler said he drove from Paducah, Ky., to “send a message the war was fought over states’ rights. Slavery was an issue, but it was not the main issue.”

    Sorry Ms Williams, but how can you be offended by the SCV holding this event in February??? It was a reenactment of an historical event that took place in Feb 1861! Do you really believe that it should have been moved out of this month?? Just because it’s black history month, do you think that no one else should celebrate their history that happens to fall in that month?? Who is being intolerant here!?!

    Very well put, Charliereb. It seems the libs only believe in opinions as a one way street, their view only.
