Forrest Rides Again!
The request for a waiver to the Tennessee
Heritage Preservation Act of 2015 in order to remove the Forrest statue
HAS BEEN DENIED!
God has blessed our Heritage Warriors with a great Victory!
Memphis City Council's request to move the monument has been DENIED. Congratulations to the Memphis Brigade, Sons of Confederate Veterans, and all those who helped win this battle. Those in attendance said the discussion was brief and the decision came quickly.
The war against our heritage is not over, by any means, but this victory, and scores of others like it across the country are serving to inspire others to rise up and join our ranks, and will serve to further discourage municipalities from even considering similar actions, knowing the attempt will to lead to further division among citizenry, countless wasted hours and resources, and taxpayer money tossed away in unnecessary and expensive legal fees.
