My Appearance on the Andrew Carrington Hitchcock Show

In today’s show originally broadcast on May 19 2018, EuroFolkRadio’s Andrew Carrington Hitchcock interviews Clint Lacy, for a show entitled, “An Analysis Of The Movie Ride With The Devil.”

We discussed: Clint’s recent articles for The Barnes Review and the American Free Press; the Wikipedia description of the, “Ride With The Devil,” movie, and the flaws in their description; why the studio who distributed this film limited its’ distribution, with no regard for the fact that the studio subsequently lost money on the movie; Clint’s synopsis of the movie; how Quantrill was not the barbarian that he was portrayed in the movie, and was actually a strict disciplinarian who saved many lives; the differences between the movie and the documented historical account of what actually occurred; how fortunately the historical accuracy of the movie outweigh its’ inaccuracies; how Hollywood’s primary purpose is spreading propaganda; the ongoing censorship on YouTube; how to protect yourself from being tracked on the internet; alternatives to popular social media platforms; and many other topics.

I found a real gem while doing some research today. The Confederate Battle Flag and Confederate Monuments have been under assault for years now but there can be no doubt the past year has seen these attacks increase in frequency. One of the reasons enemies of all things Southern give for wanting to eradicate historical symbols is the claim that they represent "white supremacy".

Today I stumbled upon "Confederate women of Arkansas in the Civil War , 1861-'65" . In this book an article from the May , 1900 issue Confederate Veteran entitled "Vivid History of Our Battle Flag", written by General W.L. Cabell , Quartermaster of the Confederate army of Virginia. 

Cabell describes the Confederate Battle Flag as a red flag with a blue St. Andrew's Cross with white stars.  This description confirms that the flag was not a secular symbol, nor was it a "white supremacists" symbol.

"Sam Hildebrand's Confession" is certainly and interesting read. On pages 196-197 Hildebrand writes about a visit to Bollinger County, Missouri on May 25, 1864.

He writes of going in the direction of "Dallas" in Bollinger County [present day Marble Hill, Mo.] and encountering 7 federals [Union soldiers}.

Hildebrand notes that at the time Dallas was garrisoned by approximately 100 "Dutch" soldiers.

During this time it was common to refer to German immigrants as Dutch and Hildebrand relates the story of one that they captured who spoke in "broken English" who they executed stating, "We quietly sent his spirit back to the Rhine where it belonged"

They were seen as foreign invaders upon Missouri soil by native Southerners and it makes one wonder what feelings a citizen would have today if immigrant soldiers were garrisoned in a local community.

The Assassination of Robert Ford

The May / June issue of The Barnes Review magazine is out.  In it , appears my article about Edward O'Kelley, who killed Jesse James assassin Bob Ford. O'Kelly's father was a Union soldier but O'Kelley was raised by his Confederate grand parents.
