Commander’s Corner

We continue to see damage and destruction to our Confederate monuments and makers.  Check out this link on the Confederate Facebook page.  The destruction here is horrible at the Monocacy Cemetery. Confederate CSA Photos

 Here is another link to a story on the Richmond Times Dispatch. It is about the mayoral candidate Joe Morrissey calling for the removal of the Jefferson Davis statue on Monument Avenue.  His wife is standing  beside him during the video. If they even get one down it will open the door for more to be removed. We don’t live in Richmond but may know some who do.  It is everyone’s duty to do what they can to prevent this guy from being elected. Jefferson Davis Statue

 It is a shame that what we believe in is becoming a political issue all over the country and especially in our local areas.  There is no direction from National Headquarters or our Virginia Division.  If they are planning something they are not sharing their thoughts.  We must continue to write letters and emails to our elected officials.  Persuade them to take action to stop the removal of Confederate monuments.  Continue to educate those around you. 

 As you already know the Appomattox statue in Alexandria is in the cross hairs of the City Council. The renaming of Jefferson Davis Highway and other streets in Alexandria is another topic they are undertaking.  From what I understand there were few from the Sons of Confederate Veterans at the meeting.  Few that were there supporting the efforts of the few.  I encourage everyone to stay involved.  The UDC pushed a law through in 1890 for the statue.  Please write your letters to state and local political officials, newspapers and online websites and social media.  Keep your letters short and to the point. Don’t be rude or arrogant. You don’t even have to say you are a member of the SCV. In fact it would be better coming from a concerned citizens point of view. As we have found out there are some publications that won't print anything from our point of view, but it is still important to make the effort.
