(Elm Springs, TN) 14 August 2017 — The Sons of Confederate Veterans opposes the KKK and other racist organizations. The SCV condemns in the strongest possible way the actions, words, and beliefs of any racist group. These groups are filled with hatred and bigotry, and racism is counter to the American principles of freedom for all citizens. Neither white supremacists nor any other racist group represent true Southern Heritage or the Confederate Soldier, Sailor, or Marine. In like-manner, the SCV condemns the actions of the “Antifa” counter-protestors whose role was to meet violence with violence and to answer hate with hate. Particularly, the SCV condemns the Alt-Left’s attempts to attack Confederate monuments and other war memorials in an attempt to tarnish the true history of our great nation and to further their modern socialist political agenda.

Yet, there are certain citizens who denigrate our country and its heritage, who will utilize “Historical Negationism” in their efforts to remove any vestiges of our countries heritage that they don’t agree with, such as Confederate memorials, flags, etc.

The scammers will word their email scam messages in various ways, but the general idea of the scam remains similar.

Recently, the Lt Col Elihu Hutton Camp 569 SCV started cleaning the headstones of Union soldiers, as part of our respect of all American soldiers, whether they are Confederate, Union or soldiers of other American conflicts.
One of our first cleanings was the headstones of Jesse F. Phares, who served as a scout for the Union army, and the headstone of his wife, Lucinda Phares. We used D2 Biological Solution to clean their headstones, which is the same cleaning solution we used to clean Confederate headstones. Continue reading “Cleaning Union Headstones”
