Important News

I am a Southerner

I am a Southerner...
I won’t apologize
I won’t be reconstructed.
I will not surrender
my identity, nor my heritage.
I believe in the Constitution,
In States’ Rights,
That the government should be the
Servant, not the Master of the people.
I believe in the right to bear arms,
The right to be left alone.

I am a Southerner...
The spirit of my Confederate ancestor
Boils in my blood.
He fought,
Not for what he thought was right,
But for what was right.
Not for slavery,
But to resist tyranny, Machiavellian laws,
Oppressive taxation, invasion of his land,
For the right to be left alone.

I am a Southerner...
A rebel,
Seldom politically correct,
At times belligerent.
I don’t like Lincoln, Grant, Sherman,
Or modern neocon politicians like them.
I like hunting and fishing, Lynyrd Skynyrd,
The Bonnie Blue and Dixie
I still believe in chivalry and civility.

I am a face in the Southern collage of
Gentlemen and scholars, belles and writers,
Soldiers and sharecroppers, Cajuns and Creoles,
Tejanos and Islenos, Celts and Germans,
Gullah and Geechi, freedmen and slaves.
We are all the South.

The South . . . My home,
My beautiful home,
My culture, my destiny, my heart.
I am a Southerner.

2014 2nd Quarter Newsletter, The Torpedo

The CSS Hunley under the command of Lt. George Dixon was the first submarine to sink an enemy warship in combat.

On February 17, 1864 the CSS Hunley sank the USS Housatonic off Sullivans Island, Charleston, South Carolina.

The CSS Hunley itself never returned.

This feat would not happen again until World War One - fifty years later.
