The Alabama State Memorial, stands where Gen. Evander Law’s Alabama Brigade began
their assault toward Little Round Top on July 2, 1863. It was dedicated on November 12, 1933, by the Alabama Division
of the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC). It was the “realization of a long cherished dream of that organization.”
Elizabeth B. Bashinsky was primarily responsible for the memorial. A member of the Alabama Women’s Hall of Fame,
she was from Dixon Springs, Tennessee, and had been an elementary school teacher in Troy, Alabama. As a UDC leader,
she was instrumental in establishing a scholarship program—still in existence today—that has given thousands of
dollars to deserving young people. Dr. C. B. Smith, former president of Troy University, said of her that he could
“think of no other woman who served other people so well and over so long a period.”

The Yankee Empire
While the Yankee Empire's financial/commercial interests prospered post-war, the people of the United States' first captive nation (the Confederate States of America or simply the South) sunk into dreadful poverty. This is to be expected; after all, empires do not invade free nations to improve the lot of the conquered and occupied people. Empires invade smaller or weaker nations to extract natural resources, gain tribute in the form of tariffs and taxes, acquire cheap labor, create captive markets for the empire's goods, and tap a vast reservoir of impoverished young people who will seek relief from poverty by joining the Empire's military. Yankee General Sherman noted the superb fighting ability of Southern men and hoped to make use of them when the War was over. Southern blood has been a key factor in every war waged by the Yankee Empire since Appomattox. Kennedy & Kennedy, Yankee Empire - Aggressive Abroad and Despotic at Home.
When Abraham Lincoln launched his military invasion of the Southern States to prevent their peaceful and democratic assertion of independence, he ushered in a radically different Union than the one the Founders intended.
Whether it was slavery, tariffs, or a redefinition of Federal powers matters little. The question of whether we live in a voluntary government or a compulsory one, enforced at gunpoint, was answered with the death and maiming of almost a million Americans from 1861 to 1865.
At the heart of the ever-encroaching State that we find ourselves living under is the legacy of Abraham Lincoln. Every tyrant, from Karl Marx to Woodrow Wilson, FDR to Adolf Hitler, George W Bush and Barack Obama, have embraced the Lincoln mantle in both their writings and their actions. For Liberty to reemerge, the Lincoln myth must be shattered and exposed.
If your spouse wanted to separate from you for whatever reason and you wanted to preserve that union at all costs, could you call yourselves "united" by pointing a gun at your spouse and compelling your spouse to stay? Union, at the point of the bayonet is no "Union" at all. It's empire. Wasn't this nation founded on the concept of "consent of the governed?" Did not our Founders "secede" from Great Britain? Did not Britain attempt to keep their empire "united?"
The social and political unrest in NYC amongst working class immigrants had been building since Abraham Lincoln announced the passing of the Emancipation Proclamation. The bill, which freed slaves from the confederate states, was one that encouraged the abolitionist movement to fight harder for equality. By 1862, many abolitionists (both white and black) had arrived in New York to protest against slavery. An increase in support for African-Americans had already irked many working class New Yorkers. The Irish, already going through economic hardship were concerned about competition they would potentially face if freed blacks from confederate states migrated to New York. The federal draft law further enflamed their hatred. This draft forced all men between the ages of 20-35 to enlist in the union army. This law applied to all except the African-American population and those who could pay the $300 exemption fee.
The New Yorkers faced the prospect of being drafted into the Union Army to fight people they
did not hate for the benefit of people they despised and also as James Howell Street wrote, "face death to
give freedom to Negro slaves whose cousins had taken their jobs. It was too much." James Howell Street, The
Civil War (New York, 1953) p.90
Ralph Waldo Emerson's famous quotes
Concerning The War for Southern Independence Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "If it costs ten
years and ten to recover the general prosperity, the destruction of the South is worth so much."
Understanding "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," Harriet Beecher Stowe, Julia Ward Howe, "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and the murderer John Brown
"It was not Carolina, but Virginia, not Fort Sumter, but Harper's Ferry, not Major Anderson, but John Brown who began the war that ended slavery and made this a free republic." Frederick Douglas
Slaves Contraband Camps
In the disruption of southern life few suffered more than the ex-slaves. Free and footloose Negroes became a problem to Union officers in captured Confederate territory early in the war, and eventually large numbers were gathered in so-called "contraband camps" where deaths from the elements, epidemics, and crime ran as high as 25 per cent in a few months. The Emancipation Proclamation magnified the problem, but it took Congress more than two years to cope with the crisis. In March 1865, Congress at last created the "bureau of refugees, freedmen, and abandoned lands," known since as the Freedmen's Bureau. Abetted by private northern philanthropy, the Bureau did nobly at the start, but after Appomattox it was swamped as were other resources. More "contraband camps" were opened and their population multiplied. During the first two years after the war, a third of the Negroes died in some of the camps.

A Yankee's View of the War
The United States ceased to be a republic Of the people, By the people and For the people on April 09, 1865. "The principle, on which the [War for Southern Independence] was waged by the North, was simply this: That men may rightfully be compelled to submit to, and support, a government that they do not want; and that resistance, on their part, makes them traitors and criminals." - Lysander Spooner, 1867 - Lysander Spooner was an American individualist anarchist, political philosopher, essayist, pamphlet writer, Unitarian Christian abolitionist, supporter of the labor movement, legal theorist, and entrepreneur of the nineteenth century.
Lincoln's Invading Army
The objective of Lincoln's invading army was not to "free the slaves" as often claimed. General Grant's order of August 1864 during the Shenandoah Valley "Total War" campaign, specifically ordered the removal of "all negroes, so as to prevent further planting," but makes no mention of freeing the slaves. Grant's order has the same effect as splitting slave families apart, removing children from nursing mothers, and forcing the slaves, under threat of starvation, to raise food for the Union Army on abandoned southern plantations.
"Give the enemy no rest.… Do all the damage to railroads and crops you can. Carry off stock of all descriptions, and all negroes, so as to prevent further planting. If the war is to last another year, we want the Shenandoah Valley to remain a barren waste." Gen. Ulysses S. Grant
Waging War Against Women & Children
To Union General Henry Halleck in Washington, Sherman noted that the [southern] women were "tainted
with treason" and "are as much governed by the rules of war as if in the ranks... The whole region was
devoted to manufacturers, but I will destroy every one of them."
"Every man should endeavor to understand the meaning of subjugation before it is too late... It means the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern schoolteachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the war; will be impressed by the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit objects for derision... It is said slavery is all we are fighting for, and if we give it up we give up all. Even if this were true, which we deny, slavery is not all our enemies are fighting for. It is merely the pretense to establish sectional superiority and a more centralized form of government, and to deprive us of our rights and liberties." Major General Patrick R. Cleburne (1828–1864)
"The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak the truth." George Orwell
