Here is the result of the drawing for the Warriors of Honor Giveaway. The number selected from the 13 posts is 8, which is Lee-Jackson and CSA Day Dinners, published on 09/17/2010. Unfortunately, there were no comments at all on this post, so the DVD will be donated to the church library of The Bible Baptist Church. It will get plenty of exposure there since we have a very large and well-organized home schooling group. Unlike many church libraries, ours could easily serve as a modest school library with a very wide variety of subjects. I have seen very few places that could match its collection of books on the War for Southern Independence. Our pastor is a voracious reader and regularly checks out used book stores.
Let me take this opportunity to again say what a great DVD Warriors of Honor is. It deserves a place in the home of every true Southerner. It deserves a place in every church library. It deserves a place in every public library and every school library. We know, of course, that it would never survive in the public or school libraries – it would quickly be destroyed or stolen by the cultural Marxists who now control much of this country. That really doesn’t matter to us though, and it shows just how great the need really is. This is a powerful tool to tell our story, and we need to do all we can to make full use of it. The banner ad on this site will remain there, and I will be taking every opportunity to promote Warriors of Honor. I hope you will too.
I will have to say here that I am rather disappointed in the poor response to this giveaway, and I am embarrassed that this DVD that was so graciously donated to us for this giveaway did not receive greater exposure here. Of the 13 posts during the month of September, only 4 had any comments at all. I also need to say that this disappointment and embarrassment is on me alone. I need to do more to increase the exposure of the Confederate Colonel project. No matter what we have available here, it won’t matter if people don’t know it is here and don’t read it. I understand that the number of us who still cherish and revere our Southern heritage and culture is very small. I understand that there are large and powerful cultural forces that work at destroying what little there is left of traditional Southern culture. My sincere thanks to those who remain true to our rich Southern heritage – you truly are a blessing to me.
I am wide open to suggestions and recommendations for ways to build on what we have. If you have any thoughts, please either add a comment to this post or use the Contact link if you think that would be more appropriate.
