    Interesting...

    I have heard that the flag is popular in Portugal, along with other European nations.

    Here's two pictures of Nationalists protesting gay marriage in Portugal with Confederate naval jacks,

The symbols of the Civil War mean different things to different people and our problems today with these symbols concerns the efforts of one group to have its meanings standardized on those symbols.
    What group?

    This flag as popular nowadays as CCCR shirts. It's really nothing but a fashion. I have seen many bikers here riding with this flag.

    Re: Confederate States Allied Europe

    Hi everyone, I am so glad to find this "CONFEDERATE" part of Skadi.
    Here is some information, that y'all my find helpful. Excerpts from my yearly send out "German-American Day". Greetings from the Southland! Georgia - Deo Vindice - Resurgam!
    PS: If the links don't work, please copy and paste.

    Germans were present at the creation of this nation. The Germans who came to Jamestown in 1608 and subsequently in 1620 were the forerunners of the largest nationality to immigrate to the united States since its founding in 1776.
    On the Southern side, surely one of the most interesting German figures was JEB Stuart's aide, Major Johann August Heinrich Heros Von Borcke. A tall, handsome blond young man in the German ideal, Von Borcke came from an old Prussian military family of the titled nobility. Serving in the Second Brandenburg Regiment of Dragoons at the time the Civil War began, either from boredom with garrison duty or due to an argument with his father, young Heros departed for the Confederacy, landing in Charleston, South Carolina, in May 1862. Introduced to JEB Stuart by Confederate Secretary of War George Randolph, Von Borcke quickly became a dear friend of the equally young Confederate cavalier, and from then on the Prussian was rarely far from Stuart's side. Despite a regrettable tendency to ascribe to himself a number of exploits which were actually the actions of others, Von Borcke's writings about his year on Stuart's staff and subsequent adventures in Virginia following his near-fatal wounding in June 1863 are entertaining and fill in a number of historical gaps. He was beloved and admired by his Confederate comrades.
    Von Borcke returned to Prussia and served his native land in a war with Austria in 1866; to his amusement and pleasure, the famous Austrian military genius Helmuth von Moltke greeted him with the words, "Are you not the American?" Forced to an early retirement in 1867 due to a Yankee bullet he still carried in his lung, Von Borcke married and had three sons. When he inherited a castle and estate at Giesenbrugge, it was his delight to fly the Confederate flag from its battlements. He died in 1895, reminiscing fondly about his days as a Confederate right up to the end.

    Another German, Charles Frederick Ernest Minnigerode, was pastor to Jefferson Davis, Christian president of the Confederate States of America: http://docsouth.unc.edu/imls/minnige...nnigerode.html

    Re: Confederate States Allied Europe

    Hi y'all! I am posting the following for educational purpose. I always hear that we must honor our ancestors. The question remains on how to truly honor them.

    I submit that the only way this can be done is to embrace the same principles for which they fought and died. And to do this, one must know "Truth in History." Truth does not change with time, truth is eternal.
    Deo Vindice - Resurgam! Georgia, occupied territory.


    From "blueridge":

    I believe that a loss of independent internal power by our confederated States, and an acquisition of supreme power by the Federal department, or by any branch of it, will substantially establish a consolidated republic over all the territories of the United States, though a federal phraseology might still remain; that this consolidation would introduce a monarchy; and that the monarchy, however limited, checked, or balanced, would finally become a complete tyranny.
    -- John Taylor of Caroline, 1821



    "911" was no surprise, nor carried out by pretended Al-Queda or "Islamic terrorists". It was planned and executed by a Fifth Column of revolutionaries within and without the government (see Operation Northwoods '62 document at link left), a False-flag attack to begin a coupe d tat to seize full power. President Bush as a puppet, was told what to do, and monitored the attack LIVE. Here is President Bush's own testimony (from White House transcripts and audio), twice, in two townhalls, in Dec. 2001, and January 2002, in his own words, that would prove, in any court of law, that arrangements were made for him to monitor the anticipated event LIVE!

    More on what really happened with the so-called Civil War, and what happened on 9/11--all relevant!

    Re: Confederate States Allied Europe

    Recently I went on a school trip with my daughter and her school. I had volunteered to be one of the drivers.


    As we traveled unhurriedly along the country roads of South Georgia, the surroundings brought so many thoughts to our mind. Motivated by the beauty of this land we reflected upon the cultural heritage that God so graciously bestowed upon a people known as Georgians, part of a people called Southern-Confederate Americans. Our conversation centered around this godly heritage.

    The heart of any nation is the family. The family is the basic unit of any society. When the family life disintegrates, society disintegrates. I recently came across a quote which is so true: "It has seemed to me that the final test of any civilization is, what type of husbands and wives and fathers and mothers does it turn out." Think about it. The family has been an important part of Western civilization, indeed of all civilizations. The family first of all consists of a man and a woman in a marriage relationship. Children are a gift from the Lord—a trust. To the Christian family children are individuals the Lord has put in our lives to lead to Him and to nurture as disciples of the faith. The family provides meaning, continuity and purpose in the lives of individuals. It provides a nurturing and protective environment in which children can progress to adulthood and the best environment for the care of the aged, the disabled and the young.

    There is no society which can survive without strong family relationships. History records that moral values and the family were an integral part of Roman and Greek civilization at the height of their greatness. The influence of permissive values contributed to the decline of these civilizations.

    "Rolling" along Southern country roads, we rejoiced in the heritage handed down to us by our Confederate ancestors: a culture rooted deeply in Christian values, which are still very much alive in many areas of the Southland.
