ALERT: Memphis City Council to consider desecrating graves and re-writing history

Believe it or not but the Memphis City Council will be debating the renaming of three Confederate Parks in Memphis AND digging up the graves of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife. Political correctness is certainly running amok in Memphis right now and needs to be stopped.

Below we have included a statement by Commander Jack Bridwell of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Below that is the contact information for the Memphis City Council. We encourage every one to contact the Memphis Council and for those interested have supplied a letter writing tool. Phone numbers are available for those who prefer to communicate by phone.

Whatever your chosen method is, NOW is the time to be heard! Be firm but polite. At this time the City Council has not taken any action, our goal is to encourage them to leave the parks as is and let Mr. & Mrs. Forrest rest in peace.

Brothers,

There is an attempt ongoing to rename several parks in Memphis, Tennessee, and at the same time to remove statues of various Confederate Heroes from these parks. The changes will remove the names of Confederate heroes to names which are “non-controversial”, you can use your imagination to come up with what they will probably be.

Following is a list of names of individuals who will have the final say on the “renaming” I urge each of you to either write, email or call each of them and suggest the names remain the same and that the removal of the statues not take place. If you are from a remote area, point out that the name change and statue removal will have a detrimental effect on any future visits on your and your friends visiting the city.

I ask that each of you remain civil, but firm, and refrain from any obscene or other language which could be used against our efforts.

Over the past years we’ve fought the battles over Flags and t-shirts, we know this was coming, it was just a matter of time, that time is NOW. Soon it will be coming to each of our home-towns, let’s stand together now and stop this attack before they establish a precedence. To use the words of Georgia Division Spokesman, Dan Coleman, “Who is surprised? We all have known this day was coming for some time. It is time to act. If not now, when?”

Incidentally, there will be a meeting to be held on this action, they hold their meetings on alternate Tuesdays, it is expected this issue will come up on the 9th of August. If you are in the area, it would be helpful if you could attend. I’ll supply the date and time when they become available to me. In the “mean time” cover them up with email, letters and calls.

Jack Bridwell
Cmdr. AOT
