The campaign for Southern Victory begins…
In the summer of 2018, Paul Gramling became Commander-in-Chief of the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) largely due to his campaign promise to “change the narrative” throughout America from “anti-Confederate” to “pro-Confederate”. He wanted to shift public opinion toward our opinion. The SCV’s Heritage Operations Committee was charged with the task, and Walter D. “Donnie” Kennedy became the chairman.
Donnie staffed his committee and launched the Southern Victory Campaign™ in October 2018— from scratch. Other founding staff members included James R. “Ron” Kennedy, Brian McClure, and Raymond H. Shores.
The SCV had never before attempted such a grand campaign. “Make Dixie Great Again” became the slogan, and a website bearing that name was launched. It’s now the tactical headquarters and supply base of the campaign, funded by Confederate Legion membership dues and donations and by ad revenue.
Constitution Day is September 17th! Watch as Ron and Donnie explain some key points to the document that made this country free.
Continue to listen to Donnie and Ron as they take us through the U.S. Constitution and exactly what our Founding Father meant this document to be.
The United States of America Constitution vs The Confederate Constitution…what are the differences?
This clear and concise essay on the U.S. Constitution is taken from chapters 1 and 2 of Walter D. Kennedy’s latest book, The Confederate Myth-Buster. It’s basically a Q&A style based on questions Mr. Kennedy is frequently asked by television and radio interviewers. States’ Rights, secession, the origin of rights, and more are covered in a brilliant fashion.
The road to victory for Liberty versus Tyranny in these United States begins with the principles covered in James R. Kennedy’s essay on State sovereignty enshrined in the U.S. Constitution and in the words of America’s Founders.
James R. Kennedy has compiled some of the best quotes from one of the greatest champions of Liberty (freedom linked to morality) ever produced north or south of the Mason-Dixon Line: John C. Calhoun. Begin your study of this great man right here and find out just how weak today’s political “leaders” truly are.
The American Colonies were right in 1776. The South was right in 1860, and the Cherokees were right in 1861. All seceded from tyranny to pursue freedom tied to Biblical principles and independence.

Black Confederate Soldiers by Dr. Samuel W. Mitcham, Jr.
Even though many people say that there was not any black confederate soldiers this article produces evidence there indeed there was black confederates. In the Army of Northern Virginia alone there were 3,000 black soldiers
Confederate Emancipation by Dr. Donald Livingston. Consider this excerpt: “…the thoughtful and humane person…is eventually brought back to the same moral conclusion: the best solution to all the problems confronting Americans in 1861 (and especially the moral challenge of slavery) was a peaceful, negotiated division of the Union.”
In this video noted historian, author, and speaker, J. Ronald Kennedy, reveals that Virginia was the first colony to try to end slavery and prevent slave importation. Ron also explains how radicals in the North ended the Southern Abolition movement.
The Confederate flag is often associated with racism however, this flag was not created for that purpose. Gen. Beauregard wanted to create a sustainable southern economy for both blacks and whites. Money-hungry Yankees refused. Watch this video to learn more.
Why is the South blamed for slavery when it was the North that started it? North America’s first slave ship’s home port was Boston, Massachusetts. North America’s last slave ship was owned by a Massachusetts firm. So, why is the South blamed for slavery? Watch this video for answers.
He was a trusted slave who ran away… not to the North, but to help the army of the Confederate States of America, where his master was already a soldier. Enjoy this documentary about one of the black “rebels” who served under the Confederate Battle flag.
