"Living in The Land Of Cotton” is designed to help or assist anyone who is a student in the studies of the “War Between the States.” Some may call it the “Civil War” or “The Great Rebellion.” On this site, however, such terms are not used. Those from the South studying this conflict or those who have a vested interest in Confederate History, see it as the “War of Northern Aggression” or the “War of Southern Independence.” All pictures or quotes come from primary sources.
Serving as Chaplain of the Stonewall Jackson SCV Camp #901 in Denton, I am committed to the charge given to the Sons of Confederate Veterans by General Stephen Dill Lee. The Confederate heritage and it’s culture, both before and after the “War Between the States” has been attacked, abused and even erased from many of our history books. The challenge to defend the Confederate soldier’s good name, to guard the history of the Confederacy and to present the true history of the South for future generations, is so important. I am committed to that challenge.
