I AM TRULY BLESSED BEYOND COMPREHENSION. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

The photo above was taken on April 25, 2005. The color guard along with armed Confederate troops prepare to fire a salute for our Southern Soldiers. This day we celebrated Confederate Decoration Day, which was the beginning of Memorial Day in the United States. The location is Friendship Cemetery in Columbus, Mississippi where on April 25, 1866 ladies in Columbus decorated the graves of fallen Confederate and Union soldiers. These soldiers were mostly dead and mortally wounded from Shiloh Battlefield. The battle took place at Shiloh Church in Tennessee on April 6-7, 1862. The act of remembering both sides by these ladies led to Columbus, Mississippi being known where, "flowers healed a nation." I along with my family were and still are very proud to have been a part of this historical act.

The photo above was taken during a Confederate Headstone Memorial Dedication in the Town of Tazewell, Virginia. This ceremony held at Jeffersonville Cemetery is but one way we as "Grandsons of the Southland" perpetuate and remember our Southern Heritage. Graves of soldiers North and South are marked by members of the SCV, and other Heritage organizations. Several generations gather to pay homage to our heroes as was the case with my grandfather, Pvt. DENNIS S. HOWERY, SR. of Co. K. - 45th VIRGINIA INFANTRY, C.S.A. Other activities within the SCV include preservation of southern symbols, such as monuments and flags. Genealogy and family histories are recorded and passed down from generation to generation. There are efforts being made to save our national treasures such as battlefields and other significant sites. I am proud of the fact the SCV came to the defense of our Mississippi Flag during the latest assaults upon our heritage by the NAACP. On the lighter side we have a great time preserving our heritage by engaging in Living History Programs and Re-enactments. I am extremely proud and honored to speak of my Confederate Ancestors, and the Sons of Confederate Veterans. I pray that the Blessings of Almighty God be upon our organization and our country in these uncertain times we live.
