MORE INFO - OLE BEDFORD'S 13TH ANNUAL BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION, FORT DIXIE - SATURDAY JULY 18- TO ALL:
We will be drawing for the solid bronze NBF mini bust - an exact replica of the life-size bronze bust THAT USED TO BE ON THE GRANITE MONUMENT IN LIVE OAK CEMETERY UNTIL HE WAS KIDNAPPED SOMETIME BETWEEN DUSK 10 MARCH & DAWN 12 MARCH 2012. If you would like tickets to get in the drawing reply back to me & I will send them electronically & you can print as many off as you would like...they are $2 each...make checks payable to NBF Monument Fund and mail to me at the address below. Now we are raising funds to replace the General and to secure him at Confederate Circle at Live Oak Cemetery. This year's celebration will have an even more intense meaning in our commitment to our life of Liberty and Freedom...perpetuating the cause of NATHAN BEDFORD FORREST & ALL our Confederate ancestors to get our Constitution back and to maintain it! Also, if you would like to receive the FRIENDS OF FORREST 2012 NEWSLETTER, please let me know.
First, please note that my PRIMARY e-mail addy is oldsouthrebel@zebra. net ...the red dot indians have messed up my e-mail account & flipped my alias to be the primary account. However, in future correspondences with me...please enter my e-mail in your address book as oldsouthrebel@zebra. net. I am going to attempt to get those red dot indians straightened out soon....but that is an ordeal I don't want to contend with right now! LOL!
As most of you probably already know, the General has been "kidnapped" from Confederate Circle in Live Oak Cemetery. On April 3 our two billboards went up posting the $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest & conviction of the perpetrator(s) of this felony crime that should be classified as a HATE CRIME...because we all know that under "other" circumstances the crime would be a hate crime & the media of all sources would be raining down on Selma with ole Al & Jesse screaming the loudest!
We have the SECURITY & BEAUTIFICATION ENHANCEMENT OF CONFEDERATE CIRCLE IN LIVE OAK CEMETERY project ongoing...to secure not only General Forrest but also the Confederate monument as well. We all know the NAACP stated in their 1991 National Resolution that they would rid the earth of every vestige of the Confederacy....Rose Sanders made several appeals over her radio program before & after the Bridge Crossing Jubilee that the NBF monument must come down and all Confederate monuments must come down!!! Obviously her public appeals over the air waves "inspired" someone to impress her! The billboards resulted in two informants coming forward...so we DOOOO have a "person of interest" in this case. I will keep y'all informed as the investigation continues. More details of our plans for Confederate Circle will be on display at the Celebration too! Sooo, Y'all come to Fort Dixie on 28 July ...and enjoy the day...Old South style!
I'd like to thank the Ala Div. SCV and International SCV Headquarters and private donors for the generous committment of the $20,000 reward money...without that very attractive award, we would never have this much information regarding the theft of General Forrest!
The Confederate battle flag, called the "Southern Cross" or the cross of St. Andrew, has been described variously as a proud emblem of Southern heritage. In the past, several Southern states flew the Confederate battle flag along with the U.S. and state flags over their statehouses. Others incorporated the symbol into the design of their state flags.
The Battle Flag
Often referred to as "The" battle flag of the Confederacy it was the design that was the basis of more than 180 separate Confederate military battle flags.
The Army of Northern Virginia battle flag was usually square, of various sizes for the different branches of the service: 48 inches square for the infantry, 36 inches for the artillery, and 30 inches for the cavalry. It was used in battle beginning in December 1861 until the fall of the Confederacy. The blue color on the saltire in the battle flag was navy blue, as opposed to the much lighter blue of the Naval Jack.
The flag's stars represented the number of states in the Confederacy. The distance between the stars decreased as the number of states increased, reaching thirteen when the secessionist factions of Missouri and Kentucky joined in late 1861.
The Battle Flag of the Confederacy.
At the First Battle of Manassas, the similarity between the Stars and Bars and the Stars and Stripes caused confusion and military problems. Regiments carried flags to help commanders observe and assess battles in the warfare of the era. At a distance, the two national flags were hard to tell apart. In addition, Confederate regiments carried many other flags, which added to the possibility of confusion.
After the battle, General P.G.T. Beauregard wrote that he was "resolved then to have [our flag] changed if possible, or to adopt for my command a Battle flag, which would be Entirely different from any State or Federal flag.
He turned to his aide, who happened to be William Porcher Miles, the former chair of Committee on the Flag and Seal. Miles described his rejected national flag design to Beauregard. Miles also told the Committee on the Flag and Seal about the general's complaints and request for the national flag to be changed. The committee rejected this idea by a four to one vote, after which Beauregard proposed the idea of having two flags. He described the idea in a letter to his commander General Joseph E. Johnston: I wrote to [Miles] that we should have two flags — a peace or parade flag, and a war flag to be used only on the field of battle — but congress having adjourned no action will be taken on the matter — How would it do us to address the War Dept. on the subject of Regimental or badge flags made of red with two blue bars crossing each other diagonally on which shall be introduced the stars, ... We would then on the field of battle know our friends from our Enemies.
