William,You are correct UB and I do not deny that at all.........................But..................
The SCV get's crucified regardless of what it does. Something as simple as placing Confederate flags on deserving graves becomes an uproar, actions brought on mostly by revenge minded people, or ones with an agenda.
Sorry, but I do not agree with the portion of your post that I have boldened above.
I have attended SCV events, such as Larry's memorial and the work being done on the Nathan Bedford Forrest home and thought it noble and grand.
I have been a part of Confederate honor guards at SCV events honoring the Confederate soldiers held prisoner at Johnston's Island and Camp Chase and have been honored to be a part of those events.
There are events the SCV participates in that draw no urges to crucify them, at least by me. There are many camps in the SCV that are doing their level best to honor their ancestors in a way that draws no heat, no objection from me. Larry showed me that and I trusted his opinion on that topic.
But as the old saying goes, the squeaky wheel gets the most attention. Those members who seem to be more interested in stirring up confrontation seem to draw the most attention.
In my view.
