States Rights And Freedom; Confederate History Month

The evil known as slavery was just one reason for the civil war to be fought. There where were also a few more issues that would have been justification for the war also. Confederate History Month is an attempt to educate those who have been brainwashed by liberals, the federal govenment, and the public school system.We are seeing the issues of state vs. federal rights, and the erosion of our constitutional rights as the fuel that is powering the Tea Party movement.

Save and on your computer of favorite places. It is full speed ahead for Confederate History Month 2010. We ask for God’s guidance and will come together during the month of April in educating 50 million people or more the truth of the Confederate men and women of the Old South who stood for States Rights and freedom and gave us our wonderful Southern Heritage. They stood tall just like their ancestors who fought for American freedom and independence in 1776.

Confederate History Month

WHEREAS,  April is the month in which the people of Virginia joined the Confederate States of America in a four year war between the states for independence that concluded at Appomattox Courthouse; and

WHEREAS, Virginia has long recognized her Confederate history, the numerous civil war battlefields that mark every  region of the state, the leaders and individuals in the Army, Navy and at home who fought for their homes and communities and Commonwealth in a time very different than ours today; and

WHEREAS,  it is important for all Virginians to reflect upon our Commonwealth’s  shared history, to understand the sacrifices of the Confederate leaders, soldiers and citizens during the period of the Civil War, and to recognize how our history has led to our present; and

WHEREAS, it is important for all Virginians to understand that the institution of slavery led to this war and was an evil and inhumane practice that deprived people of their God-given inalienable rights and all Virginians are thankful for its permanent eradication from our borders, and the study of this time period should reflect upon and learn from this painful part of our history; and

WHEREAS, Confederate historical sites such as the White House of the Confederacy are open for people to visit in Richmond today; and

WHEREAS, all Virginians can appreciate the fact that when ultimately overwhelmed by the insurmountable numbers and resources of the Union Army, the surviving, imprisoned and injured Confederate soldiers gave their word and allegiance to the United States of America, and returned to their homes and families to rebuild their communities in peace, following the instruction of General Robert E. Lee of Virginia, who wrote that, “...all should unite in honest efforts to obliterate the effects of war and to restore the blessings of peace."; and

WHEREAS,   this defining chapter in Virginia’s history should not be forgotten, but instead should be studied, understood and remembered by all Virginians, both in the context of the time in which it took place, but also in the context of the time in which we live, and this study and remembrance takes on particular importance as the Commonwealth prepares to welcome the nation and the world to visit Virginia for the Sesquicentennial Anniversary of the Civil War, a four-year period in which the exploration of our history can benefit all;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Robert McDonnell, do hereby recognize April 2010 as CONFEDERATE HISTORY MONTH in our COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA, and I call this observance to the attention of all our citizens

    You can avoid the runover of the links by actually typing real words in place of them.

    When you insert the link in Edit, go back and type CLICK HERE in the body of the link. Then erase the rest of the link. If you are in firefox, you can just click on the Link icon in the editor and highlight the part of the sentence where you want to insert the link. Then you just drop the link in the Icon box and Poof! it lights up in the sentence.
