    I am glad to see these videos getting some exposure. Did you say they will be aired on the History Channel in the coming weeks or months? Why is it that the Georgia SCV is the only chapter doing this? Do you know if any other states plan on following suit?

  2. My understanding is that they will be aired from October through December on the History Channel. We removed TV from our home many years ago (something I hope others will prayerfully considering doing) so I cannot confirm this.

    Why is the Georgia chapter the only one doing this? I wish I knew. It could be that the others just didn’t think of it. In most cases though, it is a matter of one man stepping up and taking a leadership role and making it happen. Above all else, leadership is what makes things happen, and I am quite sure that one man is responsible for this entire project. He would have talked it up among the Georgia SCV, rallied the resources, done the planning and organization, and made sure that plans were followed through to completion. I have no idea who that man might be, but we – all of us – certainly owe him a debt of gratitude.

    I don’t know if any other states have something like this in the works, but my guess is that, no they don’t. Frankly, it wouldn’t be a good idea to try and duplicate the Georgia project – they have already done a great job. There are, however, plenty of other similar projects that would be just as effective.

    Several years ago, when I was first thinking about the Confederate Colonel project, I had planned to do very much the same thing. I have a good bit of video experience, along with the equipment and software to produce a polished product. The reality though, is that it takes a lot of time and work to make something like this happen. We all have families to care for and jobs to work (at least until the government finally kills the private sector economy entirely), and it is beyond a one-man job to do an entire project.

    My hope is that other state chapters, SCV camps, MOSB chapters, and other groups of culturally-aware Southerners will be inspired to do similar projects. Perhaps that will be an upcoming post here – tossing over ideas for similar projects.

    Thanks for commenting!
