SCVOK Resolution Number A-001-2017

Because of the growing threat to peace throughout the nation, a few of us here in the Great State of Oklahoma put forth this resolution against hatred, racism, bigotry and violence, and denounce the actions and behaviors of those White Nationalist Terrorists who seek to cause division and strife. This is not an official proclamation of the Sons of Confederate Veterans (though I very seriously doubt they would object to its content), but is the result of a collaboration between

Common Confederate Soldiers and their Cause

Anyone silly enough to believe that 1,000,000 poor farm boys faced death to propagate slavery for the less than 1/3 of the populace that owned them, is a fool. The North had slaves too, and they weren’t freed by the emancipation proclamation. Only southern slaves were. It’s well documented that they were just as brutal to their slaves as southerners. It was was an American problem, not a confederate/southern one. It is a fact that the average Yankee soldier was not risking his

The Systematic Attack On Confederate Heritage 2017 Has Begun

Al Benson Jr. , author of “Lincoln’s Marxists“, ponders as to why Southerners continue to finance the destruction of their children and culture in his ARTICLE. Mr. Benson was born and raised in the North, and can testify firsthand to the relentless indoctrination to the Federalist agenda. He learned and dutifully recited  facts, figures and statistics that he was taught regarding the cause and reasoning behind the civil war. But he decided to break the Yankee mold. He thought for himself. And

The SCV a Heritage Organization? NO SIR!!!

I constantly hear people referring to the Sons of Confederate Veterans as a “heritage group” or “heritage organization”. Even from those within our ranks, these words can be heard. We are not and cannot be rightly considered a “heritage” group. Heritage groups are formed by those wishing to preserve a legacy and memorialize a moment in history. While that is part of what we wish to do, it is only a small part, and is not our main purpose. “To

Cahoon: The Union and the Myth of the Righteous Cause, Warts and All

Halford Ryan is at it again with his recent one dimensional interpretation of why the Confederate soldier fought. (“Confederate warts and all,” December 30 commentary.) He challenges Virginia Flaggers and SCV to respond to what he considers embarrassing questions.  I am here to respond and to remain at the service of anyone who still believes in The Myth of The Righteous Cause and the nobility of the Union Army destroying the southern states as conquered providences. Let’s lay some facts on the table.

A Short History of the Confederate States of America

A Short History of the Confederate States of America was written by the President of the Confederate States of America, the great President Jefferson Davis, may his memory be eternal. I’ve included a PDF of the full booklet, however, it is worth pointing out the opening paragraphs beginning on page nine (9) and a further paragraph excerpted from the close of page ten (10): IGNORANCE and credulity have enabled unscrupulous partisans so to mislead public opinion, both at home and abroad, as

SHOULD THE SOUTH CHANT THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE?

Some southern groups have removed the federal flag from their meetings and stopped robotically chanting the pledge.  Here is a quote from one site: “Some Florida SCV Camps no longer fly the American Flag and most won’t recite the Pledge of Allegiance. As a former SUV Camp Commander and active/loyal SCV member JOHN V. said, “There is nothing in the SCV By-Laws that FORCES us to say the pledge!” The REB reenactor WebSite has called for the removal of the
