A Heavenly Quote

"I am not one of those who, clinging to the old superstitions that the will of Heaven is revealed in the immediate results of trial by combat, fancy that right must be on the side of might, and speak of Appomattox as a judgement of God. I do not forget that a Suwaroff triumphed and Kosciusko fell; that Nero wielded the scepter of an empire and a Paul was beheaded; that a Herod was crowned and Christ crucified; instead of accepting the defeat of the South as a divine verdict against her, I regard it as but another instance of 'truth on the scaffold and wrong on the throne'."

Rev. Dr. Robert C. Cave
Confederate Memorial Day, 1894



Confederate Wisdom

"What you have as heritage, Take now as task;  For thus you will make it your own"

Goethe, Faust


"The South is a region that history has happened to."

Richard Weaver


 "I love the union and the Constitution but I had rather leave the union with the Constitution than remain in the union without it."

President Jefferson Davis


"All that the South has ever desired was that the Union, as established by our forefathers, should be preserved;  and that the government, as originally organised, should be administered in purity and truth."

General Robert E. Lee                         


"A question settled by violence, or in disregard of law, must remain unsettled forever."

Jefferson Davis


"I give my loyal and enthusiastic adherence to the present;  with all its fresh and glorious possibilities;  but I shall never forget that it is to the Old South that the New South owes all that is best and noblest in its being."

Thomas Nelson Page, 1892
