The New Year is now upon us, the Virus shot is out, so 2021 may be the best year yet. December the 19th I officially

became old at age 70 so to my younger readers laugh now your day is coming. To my older friends and readers, I love ya brothers

and sisters too. The old age, as my son says, you begin to look toward the end. I said before I have looked back to Wedge’s

 dead so many years ago and the three men here in Florida we lost in one week about a month back, which leads me to wishing y’all

a very Happy New Year, be safe and ride as if with Forrest. God Bless ya brother and sisters.

Gentlemen,

I would like to wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Capt 3rd Batt Co D Mechanized Cavalry

Saturday Dec.19th members of 3rd. Batt. CO. along with members from the Cow Cavalry Camp and the Major Footman camp

 installed 7 headstones honoring our Confederate dead. This is an ongoing project that is being ram rodded by Donna Mcpherson

her tireless effort in getting these stones is invaluable. Brigade Commander and Mech. Cav. Member Leon Arthur  and his departed

 wife Evelyn were also very instrumental in locating the soldiers  of Desoto County. The Cav. will be installing more head stones

after the first of the year, as of now we have 14 in our possession and I,m just going to say a few more on the way. I would like to

 thank everyone that helped out this weekend and I will be reaching out in January for more help, the next time will be a little closer.

CONFEDERATE FLAG FLYS WITH THE PELICANS

The SCV Lt. J.Y. Sanders Camp Commander, along with assistance from members of the Louisiana SCV Mechanized Cavalry,

raised a 35ft flag pole acquired from the Louisiana Division in Jefferson Parish. It is pictured here flying the Confederate Battle Flag

along with the U.S. Flag. The Sanders Camp plans to interchange different historical flags on the pole, especially Southern banners

that are not commonly known. They hope it will initiate conversations within the community, promoting our Southern Heritage & History.

SOUTHERN BANNER RAISED!

The SCV Claiborne Invincibles Camp Commander, also a trooper in the Louisiana SCV Mechanized Cavalry, purchased a

35ft flag pole from the Louisiana Division. The pole and flag were raised in Claiborne Parish as a symbol of our Southern

Heritage & History. The flag poles the Louisiana Division acquired were industrial poles used at the 1984 World’s Fair.
