| WORDS OF STRENGTH
To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we submit 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 made him glorious, and which you also cherish. Remember it is your duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations."

Who Was My Confederate ?
My Confederate Veteran "kinfolk" was Pvt.James Robert West.
He was from Lee County, Mississippi. Birthplace of Elvis I might add. And lived in the Pontocola Community outside Shannon, Mississippi.
3/4 mile east of the Natchez Trace Parkway. Then not a paved Recreational parkway, or a easy ride on mule and wagon. This Natchez Trace has much State History as far as the Chickasaw Indians as well as De Soto himself when he explored Mississippi.
Pvt. James Robert West was enlisted into the Confederate States Military Service on April 13, 1863 at Guntown, Mississippi.
Registered as Private, Company E, 2nd Mississippi Cavalry.(Laterknown as the 4th.)
He was my G G G Grandfather on my mothers side. What a True American Hero.
He served in the Campaign of Vicksburg, Champion Hill, known as The Battle of Bakers Creek.
