Many brave soldiers of the Confederacy have been ignored, in spite of their ultimate sacrifice. Most memorials to them are necessarily of a private nature due to the political shroud that sullies the memory of these brave Confederate soldiers.

On behalf of the descendants of the bravest of the brave, we make no excuses for their uncommon valor and how they fought to protect their homeland. Time and politics may fade but the truth of heroism will never die. Of those who marched off to war, a full one-third never returned alive.


We seek to help those who want to memorialize their Confederate ancestors.
We, like they, have not forgotten these brave men and will be there to remember them.
