"If I ever disown, repudiate, or apologize for the Cause for which Lee fought and Jackson died, let the Lightning's of Heaven rend me, and the scorn of all good men and true women be my portion. Sun, Moon, Stars, all fall on me when I cease to love The Confederacy. 'Tis the Cause, not the fate of the Cause, that is glorious!" Major R.E. Wilson, C.S.A

"To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we will commit the vindication of the cause for which we fought. To your strength will be given the defense of the Confederate soldier's good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles which he loved and which you love also, and those ideals which made him glorious and which you also cherish."
Lt. General Stephen Dill Lee, Commander General, United Confederate Veterans, New Orleans, Louisiana, April 25, 1906.
We are undertaking getting our Confederate Monument refurbished. It is going to be a long and diligent task but it is something that needs to be done and it is up to us to see it through. The Thomas Spight Chapter U.D.C. dedicated the statue in September 1911. I found an article in an old Sentinel dated September 21, 1911 when the dedication was held. It was a wonderful occasion for them as it will be for us once we finish our task .

Al Arnold of Jackson, MS was the guest speaker at the Tippah Tigers SCV Camp meeting August 4. Al is the great great grandson of Turner Hall. Before the War for Southern Independence Turner Hall was a slave owned by Nathan Bedford Forrest and gained his freedom just before hostilities began. Hall became the Orderly for Gen. Robert E. Lee and remained with him until the surrender at Appomattox Courthouse. Hall returned to Okolona, MS, for a time before settling in Hugo, OK. When he died, his remains were returned to MS and buried somewhere in Monroe County. Mr. Arnold is the author of a book about his ancestor titled, “Robert E. Lee’s Orderly”. Pictured with Mr. Arnold is Tippah Tigers Commander Marty Hubbard (L) and Tippah Tigers Historian Mark Evans (R).
