Camp #1923
Sons of Confederate Veterans

Welcome

The members of the Col. James J. Searcy Camp as well as all members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans are dedicated to honoring the memory of the brave and gallant men and women, who fought for the Southern Cause and to the preservation of Southern History during the 1850s & 60s.

This web site is an attempt to honor those Confederate Soldiers buried in the Heart of Little Dixie and to present the Southern History of which they were a part.

The Cemetery portion of the site can be viewed at this time. Much work has been done but the research continues. As information is discovered it will be added such as newly found veteran, graves, biographical data, and other. Record keeping in the Department of Trans-Mississippi was not as it was in the other departments of the Confederacy.

The History portion of the site has yet to begin. This section will address areas distorted by the victor's shameless historical distortions via the grease of political correctness.

The words of Winston Churchill: "History is written by the victors.", is especially relevant. With that said, we may conclude that there is another part of this history that is not written. So it is with the War Between the States.

Years pass and far too often, historians, while writing their volumes, superimpose their own standards, morals, and biases on their work. In today's world, they do not stop there. They feel free to re-write, edit and revise any parts not fitting into their warped world of political correctness. In so doing, creditability is lost and their writing revealed as the rubbish it is. We can only hope that political correctness will give way to truth in the future. The question is will the uncorrupted history of the South survive?

If you like what you see, and have an appropriate Web Site we would appreciate you giving us a Link.

Your help is needed in making this web site all it can be. If you find information that is incorrect, thought to be incorrect, or if you have additional information, please contact me. Also I would like to have copies of any old photos of Veterans listed on the index. Information you believe would be of interest is of interest to me.

Charge to the Sons of Confederate Veterans

"Confederate Veterans, we will commit the vindication of the cause for which we fought. To your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier's good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles which he loved and which you love also, and those ideals which made him glorious and which you also cherish."
