Interview with George Bollinger, Cape Girardeau County Missouri:

“One time day wuz two hundred sojers cum to our place—dey wuz Southerners, an' dey wuz nearly starved. Massa tole 'em dey cud kill dat big steer. Dey shoots him 'en 'fore he drops dey wuz on him; skinnin' him. By dat time udders had a fire built 'en de men pull out dey knives 'en dey cut off hunks; dey puts 'em on a stick 'en hol's 'em ovar de fire a few minutes—didden give 'em time to cook thru fore dey et it. Dat ole steer didden last long. 'En 'Massa' had ten cribs 'er corn. He tole' em to —— dey selves. 'Bout dat time a dispatch came, dat de "Yankees" wuz commin'. Dey went up to meet 'em, 'an dey had a battle over at Patton. Long 'bout midnight sum of 'em came back, wounded.

Revealed: SPLC Co-Founder Accused of Trying to Molest Step-Daughter

Chances are that if you're reading this you have heard of The Southern Poverty Law Center. The non for profit legal organization that has provided information to law enforcement and is a "go to" source of information by almost every reporter that encounters a "controversial" story.
Widely known for its defense of Civil Rights the SPLC has filled its coffers defending the oppressed and exposing hate-groups, at least that is how the organization wants to be perceived. The reality is that the SPLC has made their millions by twisting the facts. They would have the public believe there is a Klansman hiding behind every tree and a Nazi at every podium. 
I once found myself in their crosshairs by proposing to hoist a Missouri Battle Flag at the grave of Missouri Confederate Colonel William Jeffers in Jackson, Missouri. The ironic thing about their opposition to this "hate-crime"is the fact that after the war, Jeffers formed a militia to combat the Klan.

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. 

According to Franciscan Media:

"Andrew was Saint Peter’s brother, a…


"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.
