J.E.B. Stuart was quite a character to say the least. He "borrowed" Sam Sweeney, the first banjo player, from Col. T.T Munford, no doubt popularizing the Banjo further. At 1st Manassas he helped to rout the Union army and after Fredricksburg he led a raid to cause further damage to the Union army, capturing around 250 prisoners with countless supplies and tapping into the Union telegraph lines. He then sent a telegram to Union Quartermaster General Montgomery C. Meigs, saying ""General Meigs will in the future please furnish better mules; those you have furnished recently are very inferior." Partners: @south_carolina_nationalist
The people of Virginia, in their ratification of the Constitution of the United States of America, adopted by them in Convention on the twenty-fifth day of June, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-eight, having declared that the powers granted under the said Constitution were derived from the people of the United States, and might be resumed whensoever the same should be perverted to their injury and oppression; and the Federal Government, having perverted said powers, not only to the injury of the people of Virginia, but to the oppression of the Southern Slaveholding States.
Now, therefore, we, the people of Virginia, do declare and ordain that the ordinance adopted by the people of this State in Convention, on the twenty-fifth day of June, eighty-eight, whereby the Constitution of the United States of America was ratified, and all acts of the General Assembly of this State, ratifying or adopting amendments to said Constitution, are hereby repealed and abrogated; that the Union between the State of Virginia and the other States under the Constitution aforesaid, is hereby dissolved, and that the State of Virginia is in the full possession and exercise of all the rights of sovereignty which belong and appertain to a free and independent State. And they do further declare that the said Constitution of the United States of America is no longer binding on any of the citizens of this State.
This ordinance shall take effect and be an act of this day when ratified by a majority of the votes of the people of this State, cast at a poll to be taken thereon on the fourth Thursday in May next, in pursuance of a schedule to be hereafter enacted.
Done in Convention, in the city of Richmond, on the 17th day of April, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-one, and in the eighty-fifth year of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
JNO. L. EUBANK, Secretary of Convention

So anyone who tells you the confederate flag isn’t for white supremacy is lying. You think you should be able to raise it? Take it up with Robert E. Lee. He also said you shouldn’t raise statues or monuments in the confederacy’s honor either. So what’s your excuse now? #confederateflag#confederate#robertelee
