Dispatch – July 2014

I want to thank everyone who came to the meeting in June. Those who couldn’t make it, you missed a wonderful presentation by Dr. Richard Lee Montgomery, a brother in the SCV. His presentation was on his new book, The Confederate Book of Quotes & Narratives. The presentation was very informative and well presented. I would recommend both of his books, the other is Another Look at Six Myths in The Lost Cause. They are very informative, very well written and very easy to read.

In two years, the 2016 National Reunion will be held in Richardson, Texas. We really need to work hard to recruit and get our name out in front of people, so we can help make this reunion the best one ever. I will be donating my time to serve as an EMT and Security for the event. We need as many as possible to show up and support the SCV, and show National this is the place to be.

Gentlemen, I would like to ask of you a favor. During the 4th of July holiday fly your flags, your Confederate flags. Show the world that the SOUTH WAS RIGHT and be proud of our soldier’s flag.

As Stonewall Jackson’s Chief of Staff Robert Lewis Dabney once said “We have no need, sirs, to be ashamed of our dead; let us see to it that they be not ashamed of us.”

God Bless,

Richard M. Powell, Commander
