Yesterday I received the following email:

Dear Compatriot,

I am — —, treasurer of the SCV Edmund W. Pettus Camp in Alexander City, Alabama. One of our members has donated to the I-65 Flag Preservation Fund. I am not sure where to send the donation.

Can you provide a contact and address?

Thank You

I think he has the wrong email address. So, where would you have his donation sent?

And in other news out of the whacky world of the Confederate heritage community: It’s never too early to start your Christmas shopping. The 2017 Order of Confederate Rose calendar will make for the perfect stocking stuffer.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this post. What next? Scroll down and leave a comment if you are so inclined. Looking for more Civil War content?

Check out my book, Remembering the Battle of the Crater: War as Murder, which is an ideal introduction to the subject of Civil War memory and the 1864 battle.

  1. Pick a museum with balanced, historically accurate Civil War coverage, and send his contribution there, explaining you believe museums and history books are the only appropriate places today for flags of the Confederacy.

  2. Kevin,
    Take the donation and buy all the calendars you can get yours hands on. You can send them to all your neo-confederate supporters as holiday gifts, I’m sure they would appreciate it. I mean who wouldn’t want one of those!!!

  3. “Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War” would probably like a donation too.

  4. Oh God, tell me this is a joke. >_<

    Satire committed suicide because it couldn't compete with the reality.

Now that you've read the post, share your thoughts.
