These Self-Evident Truths
”The Proclamation of Independence”

 

"Surrender means that the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern school teachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the War; will be impressed by all the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit subjects for derision." --- General Patrick Cleburne.  And so it has been, just as General Cleburne stated!

Since the surrender of our Confederate Armies, our children have been taught, that those who formed and fought for its Confederate independence, were traitors against the United States.  When in truth they fought for the independence of a rightfully free and sovereign nation!

The nationhood of the Confederate States of America, past and present, does not rest upon whether or not Abraham Lincolns Union recognized it as such, but upon the unalienable right of all peoples, to decide for themselves, who shall rule over them, and what nation shall be theirs.  Even General Robert E. Lee, believing the Union would be gracious in victory, regretted having surrendered.

The General expressed as much in a statement to Texas ex-Governor F.W. Stockdale, when he said, "Governor, if I had foreseen the use these people desired to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox, no, sir, not by me.  Had I seen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in this right hand."

President Jefferson Davis was quite right, when 16 years after the war he stated, "The contest is not over, the strife is not ended.  It has only entered upon a new and enlarged arena."  Do not presume that the last chapter of the Confederacy was written with the surrender of our armies, or the capture of its President!

The defeat, surrender and or capture by an enemy, do not terminate the existence of a nation or its constitution, but rather makes of it a nation under occupation.  The Confederacy will be liberated and restored, and in the not to distant future, this will be proven to be a self-evident truth.  Log onboard the Proclamation of Independence and read for yourself, the rightful and legal status of the Confederate States of America.

How many of our liberties will be violated by a growing socialist big brother, before even the Yankees themselves see the light, and our own people return to the fold.

God save the Confederacy
