Sterling Price Camp 676 Formally Welcomes Not-So-New Member Mark Slater

Though Lt. Commander Mark Slater has been with us for a year or so now, we recently discovered that his SCV Membership Certificate somehow got lost in the shuffle, so we re-ordered one for presentation to him at our January 2015 camp meeting.   Here is Commander Robert Milner presenting the certificate to Lt. Commander Slater.  A belated welcome, Mark!

Civil War Well in Conifer, CO (Intersection of Barkley Road and Hwy 73)

From: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Yellow-Barn-at-Bradford-Junction-Conifer-Colorado/317570211650664

“The owners of The Yellow Barn at Bradford Junction are delighted to announce that the barn together with the other historic buildings and Civil War well are now listed on the State Register of Historic Places. . . .

Research has suggested that it is the oldest surviving well in Colorado.

It was hand dug and completed in 1862. The watering hole served as a popular stopping place on the toll road from Ken Caryl to Conifer and points west. The first post office was established at this historic crossroads in May, 1865 as Hutchinson. The name of the post office was changed to Conifer in 1894.”

From: http://coniferhistoricalsociety.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/summer11.pdf

“The well was dug in 1862, just as word was received of the Second Battle of Bull Run, and thus was nicknamed The Civil War Well. It sat smack dab in the middle of the road as well as in the middle of the intersection of Bergen Park (coming down from the north) and Bradford Junction toll roads, and was visited by everyone who stopped to pay the toll and rest before continuing their journey.”

Bobby Horton: "Confederate Song"

One of our favorites.

Rally 'round our country's flag,

Rally boys nor do not lag,

Come from every vale and crag, sons of liberty.


Northern band do tread our soil,

Forth they come for blood and spoil,

To the homes we gained with toil, shouting “Slavery!”.


Traitorous Lincoln's bloody band,

Now invades the free man's land,

Armed with sword and firebrand ‘gainst the brave and free.


Arm ye then for fray and fight,

March ye forth both day and night,

Stop not 'til the foe’s in sight, sons of chivalry.


In your veins the blood still flows,

Of brave men who once arose,

To burst the shackles of their foes, honest men and free.


Rise then in your power and might,

Seek the spoil, brave the fight,

Strike for God for truth for right, strike for liberty.

Veterans Day: Remarks of Jim Webb at the Confederate Memorial

There are at least two lessons for us to take away from such a day of remembrance. The first is one our leaders should carry next to their breasts, and contemplate every time they face a crisis, however small, which puts our military at risk. It should echo in their consciences from the power of a million graves. It is simply this: You hold our soldiers’ lives in sacred trust. When a citizen has sworn to obey you, and follow your judgment, and walk onto a battlefield to defend the interests you define as worthy of his blood, do not abuse that awesome power through careless policy, unclear objectives, or inflexible leadership.

The second lesson regards those who have taken such an oath, and who have honored the judgment of their leaders, often at great cost. Intellectual analyses of national policy are subject to constant re-evaluation by historians as the decades roll by, but duty is a constant, frozen in the context of the moment it was performed. Duty is action, taken after listening to one’s leaders, and weighing risk and fear against the powerful draw of obligation to family, community, nation, and the unknown future.

We, the progeny who live in that future, were among the intended beneficiaries of those frightful decisions made so long ago. As such, we are also the caretakers of the memory, and the reputation, of those who performed their duty — as they understood it — under circumstances too difficult for us ever to fully comprehend.

James Webb on Political Correctness and Irrational Comparisons

"Even the venerable Robert E. Lee has taken some vicious hits, as dishonest or misinformed advocates among political interest groups and in academia attempt to twist yesterday’s America into a fantasy that might better serve the political issues of today. The greatest disservice on this count has been the attempt by these revisionist politicians and academics to defame the entire Confederate Army in a move that can only be termed the Nazification of the Confederacy. Often cloaked in the argument over the public display of the Confederate battle flag, the syllogism goes something like this: Slavery is evil. The soldiers of the Confederacy fought for a system that wished to preserve it. Therefore they were evil as well, and any attempt to honor their service is a veiled effort to glorify the cause of slavery.  This blatant use of the race card in order to inflame their political and academic constituencies is a tired, seemingly endless game that is itself perhaps the greatest legacy of the Civil War’s aftermath. But in this case it dishonors hundreds of thousands of men who can defend themselves only through the voices of their descendants.”  (James Webb, Born Fighting: How The Scots-Irish Shaped America)

Anyone who tries to argue that the Southern Confederacy was like National Socialism knows nothing about either Southern conservatism or National Socialism.
