"Surrender means that the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern school teachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the War; will be impressed by all the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit subjects for derision."
- General Patrick Cleburne, CSA
Cleburne's forecast unfortunately proved to be true. Today the history taught is revisionist history. Very little do most people know of the Old South and the "Cause" the Confederates fought so valiantly and the sacrifices made for in the "War for Southern Independence". The purpose of this page is to bring to light the lies and distortions that are prevalent today.
|"Any people, anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable and most sacred right - a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world. Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing government may choose to exercise it. Any portion of such people that can, may revolutionize, and make their own, of so many of the territory as they inhabit."|

Before long the nationwill begin to forget what it is and what it was. The world around it will forget even faster.” Milan Hubl,
