4 Page 4 Lt. Commander s Comments Why We Respect Our Confederate Ancestors Some folks have a difficult time understanding the passion and pride filling the descendants of a Confederate soldier. As SCV members, we have studied the difficult hardships facing those men and their families as well as the sacrifices they made. Sadly, the reasons for the pride we have in our Confederate ancestors are all too often misunderstood and misinterpreted by those lacking a Confederate heritage. Acclaimed editor and historian John McGlone addressed those matters in a 1993 essay entitled Why Search For Confederate Ancestors? Clearly and concisely, McGlone hits the nail squarely on the head with the following words. "Confederates were patriots in the tradition of George Washington, Davy Crockett and Andrew Jackson, and, like other American heroes, are deserving of out honor. If you are fortunate enough to know that you have Confederate ancestors, then you would do well to learn more about them. Southerners do not celebrate the act of war. The South has suffered a disproportionally high share of casualties in all of America's wars, including the one of People who have borne the battle, and their widows and orphans, do not find joy in the maimed and dead. But what Southerners do honor is courage and consistency, fortitude in the face of overwhelming odds, and devotion to "duty", a word which Gen. Robert E. Lee proclaimed to be the most sublime word in the English language. Your Confederate ancestors are worthy of honor. Study them well. It would be difficult to find better models for your own conduct."

7 Page 7 In Memory August 6, 2016 Cadet Tucker Little (7yrs old), remembers Commander Bruce Hodges as the man that brought the cinnamon rolls to our 93 year old neighbor. Bruce always gave Tucker a package of sweet rolls when he came by. I attended the funeral service for Bruce Hodges today and it was a wonderful celebration of his life. Friends and family filled the funeral home to standing room only. His S.C.V. Brothers were well represented with at least eight members from his camp PMR 2222 and the O.C.R. Many SCV members, from at least 4 other camps, were there. Bruce's family gave amazing testimonials about him, but his daughter's tribute brought tears to my eyes. I spoke to many people before and after the service and we all felt the same way about Bruce. He was a man who genuinely cared about you, and he wasn't afraid to get involved. We all loved him for that. If there was a project need to be done you knew you could count on Bruce. Tucker said, "Dad, I'm sorry you lost your friend." I explained that I would see him again one day. Rick Little Parish Mounted Rangers

8 Page 8 Confederate Constitution VS US Constitution I am starting something new with this newsletter. I am going to do a comparison of the US Constitution and the Confederate Constitution. I am going to use the US Constitution at the time of I want to compare the two and let ya ll see what the Confederate States had in mind. Let s start this newsletter with the Preambles of both. Confederate Constitution Preamble We, the people of the Confederate States, each State acting in its sovereign and independent character, in order to form a permanent federal government, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Confederate States of America. US Constitution Preamble We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. Even though the two preambles are very similar, there are striking differences. What I find interesting in comparing the two preambles is that the Confederate preamble stated the sovereignty and independence of each individual state, while the US Preamble did not. Also the Confederate Preamble states that secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God while the US preamble has no mention of God or a divine being. I also find it interesting that the US preamble said provide for the common defense the Confederate preamble did not. Some interesting differences between the two but also some very similar statements. Now I am not going to go through the whole documents of both but concentrate on the differences. Please watch the following: know we are not to be political, but this is a civics lesson. Keith Day Past Commander PMR 2222 Editor
