If this week's news stories and headlines seem to be a little behind it is because I am actually preparing this issue on November 12th for release on the 25th. The reason for the early preparation is because, hopefully, as you receive this, I will be in Mexico - and I will NOT have an internet connection. 

This issue will hit your eMail box and/or Facebook on BLACK FRIDAY. So much of this issue will be the Dixie Heritage Black Friday Event! That's right, we are deeply discounting our books and other heritage products so that you can give them as Christmas presents to yourself or to others. 

Unlike most Black Friday events, you will not have to go to your favorite store at 4 am only to find out that they had already sold out of everything at 3:59. We will honor the prices for our BLACK FRIDAY event though December 9th. If you will order your stuff by December 9th we will be able to ship in time for Christmas. If you order after December 9th we may honor your purchase but there will be ni guarantee of Christmas delivery. If you order after December 9th and we decide not to honor the sale we will issue a FULL refund. So you can order without fear. 

You will definitely want to scroll through the entire issue because we close out with a great parody submitted by one of our favorite contributors, Howling Dawg Editor and SCV Commander John Wayne Handley of Georgia. 

Lets start with the NEWS:


The fate of the Louisville, Kentucky monument honoring Confederate soldiers has finally been determined. It will be moved to a nearby town of Brandenburg, officials said.
Brandenburg, about 45 miles southwest of Louisville, is where Confederate General John Hunt Morgan crossed the Ohio River into Indiana in 1863 as part of his raid into northern territory.
Louisville officials chose to move the monument there because Brandenburg, which hosts a biennial Civil War Re-enactment, plans to place it in a prominent spot along the river.


Georgetown, Texas recently marked the 100th anniversary of the unveiling of the Confederate statue on the south side of their courthouse.

The group Courageous Conversations used the occasion to petition the county commissioners to put a plaque next to the statue addressing slavery as part of the "Civil War." Members say the statue, in its current state, represents slavery.

Ten speakers in support of the plaque spoke before the commissioners court Tuesday, asking them to approve their application for the plaque. Three people spoke against the plaque.

After hearing from both sides, commissioners did not vote on the application, saying they didn't have enough time to review it before a midnight deadline to submit the paperwork to the state. The commissioners court must approve the application before it can be sent to the state to review and the window to submit applications to the state began in September. The Texas Historical Commission has the final say on whether a marker gets approved.

The group Courageous Conversations says they'll re-apply next year. 
"We're going to keep pushing this agenda as much as we can," the group's leader said, "because it's more than about a Confederate statue. It's about us showing the world that Williamson County is diverse." 

Bus tour takes Columbians on trip back through time

Echoes of the War Between the States resound throughout Columbia, South Carolina and Historic Columbia is taking folks on a trip back in time to visit some of those WBTS sites.
The 90-minute tour begins at 2 p.m. Sunday.
"The War shaped Columbia culturally, physically and psychologically in ways that remain apparent today in our cityscape," said John Sherrer, Historic Columbia's director of cultural resources. "Historic Columbia's WBTS tour highlights people, places and events of this important era."
Columbia's antebellum and Reconstruction era structures - including churches, hospitals, armories, governmental buildings and private homes - offer testimony to this tumultuous chapter in American history.
On the tour, visitors will learn about Columbia dur ing the early years of the war and about the fateful night of Feb. 17, 1865 when 30 percent of the city's structures were lost to fire. Folks can stop at the State House and count the iron stars marking where Union cannonballs hit the building.
"Contrary to popular belief, the entire city was not destroyed in February 1865," Sherrer said. "Though about one-third of the city burned, a great deal of antebellum Columbia remained. Other forces, including urban renewal in the 1960s, led to further losses."
People may be surprised to learn the history in their everyday lives.
"Today, reminders of the War, the city's burning, and how the era was memorialized, can be found throughout downtown," Sherrer says. "You may buy your groceries at a former Confederate printing plant, or perhaps your favorite bar is in a former antebellum train station; maybe you take classes in what once was a Confederate hospital. The past is everywhere."
Bus tour tickets may be purchased at the Robert Mills Carriage House, at 1616 Blanding St. in Columbia.

General Spanky is a full-length (not a short) comedy film released to theatres on December 11, 1936.
Spanky (George McFarland), Alfalfa (Carl Switzer), Buckwheat (Billie Thomas) and others form an army called "The Royal Protection of Women and Children Regiment Club of the World and Mississippi River." The group sees unexpected action when Union troops approach, engaging in battles more farcical than fierce. Using clowning tactics instead of military tactics, the kids stop the advance...and later save an adult friend from the firing squad.

Advance to the Rear is a light-hearted 1964 American western comedy film set in the War between the States. It stars Glenn Ford, Stella Stevens and Melvyn Douglas and is directed by George Marshall. The film is based on the 1957 novel Company of Cowards by Jack Schaefer, with the film having that title in pre-production and when released in the United Kingdom. However, the novel had none of the comedic elements of the film which retained only the basic idea of a unit formed out of men who had been court-martialed for cowardice and sent out west as well as some character names.
Union Colonel Claude Brackenbury has a cozy arrangement with his Confederate counterpart. They fire a few artillery rounds in each other's general direction at precisely the same time each morning, then go back to contentedly waiting for the war to end.
Captain Jared Heath, however, disturbs the status quo one day by going out and capturing some of the enemy. The Confederates feel obliged to retaliate. One thing leads to another and a military fiasco results. As punishment, Brackenbury and Heath are demoted, placed in charge of all the misfits General Willoughby can find and shipped west, where they can (hopefully) do no further damage.
The Confederates are suspicious. So they too go west to find out the "real" mission. Out West, the soldiers are captured by Thin Elk, an Indian chief in league with the Confederates.
In my mind, the big star of this film is Alan Hale, Jr. (remember him as The Skipper on Gilligan's Island). You'll laugh through this whole DVD!

Uncivil Warriors is a 1935 WBTS film starring The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Curly Howard). Uncivil Warbirds was a short film released in 1946 and, because of a stroke, was one of the last times Curley would appear as a Stooge.
You will receive BOTH films on DVD!
In both films the Stooges fight for both armies at the SAME time as only the Stooges could. But in the end we discover that their allegiance was always to The South!
In Uncivil Warriors they manage to pass safely between fighting armies by creatively singing Dixie to the tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic. This resulted in both armies hearing their song and allowing the Stooges to safely pass. It is also the first film in which the Stooges mention "Good Time Charlie." In later films and shorts, when the Stooges meet a guard, they often reference Charlie. The guard asks who Charlie is, and a Stooge replies that "everybody knows Charlie. He walks like this." The Stooges then demonstrate a silly walk until they get clear of the guard, at which point they take off running. This will become a recurring joke in the Stooge films. In Uncivil Warriors, they actually meet a soldier named Charlie, who asks the Stooges, "Are you all looking for me?"
In Uncivil Warbirds, Moe and Larry accidentally join the Union Army, while Curly manages to correctly sign up with the Confederate. Before the error can be corrected, several Union soldiers order Moe and Larry to lock up their "prisoner." A few moments later, a Confederate general sees Curly being released and, upon seeing Moe and Larry, thinks he has captured two Union soldiers. This mix up goes back and forth several times, until Moe and Larry finally find Confederate uniforms, only to be caught in Union army headquarters. They eventually escape by performing minstrel song-and-dance routine in blackface, with Curly playing a Mammy-type character and Larry strumming a banjo.

The flood of Trump-fearing American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past week. 

The Republican presidential campaign is prompting an exodus among left-leaning Americans who fear they'll soon be required to hunt, pray, pay taxes, and live according to the Constitution.

Canadian border residents say it's not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, liberal arts majors, global-warming activists, and "green" energy proponents crossing their fields at night.

"I went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a Hollywood producer huddled in the barn," said southern Manitoba farmer Red Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota.   "He was cold, exhausted and hungry, and begged me for a latte and some free-range chicken.  When I said I didn't have any, he left before I even got a chance to show him my screenplay, eh?"

In an effort to stop the illegal aliens, Greenfield erected higher fences, but the liberals scaled them. He then installed loudspeakers that blared Rush Limbaugh across the fields, but they just stuck their fingers in their ears and kept coming. Officials are particularly concerned about smugglers who meet liberals just south of the border, pack them into electric cars, and drive them across the border, where they are simply left to fend for themselves after the battery dies.

"A lot of these people are not prepared for our rugged conditions," an Alberta border patrolman said. "I found one carload without a single bottle of Perrier water, or any gemelli with shrimp and arugula. All they had was a nice little Napa Valley cabernet and some kale chips.  When liberals are caught, they're sent back across the border, often wailing that they fear persecution from Trump high-hairers.

Rumors are circulating about plans being made to build re-education camps where liberals will be forced to drink domestic beer, study the Constitution, and find jobs that actually contribute to the economy.

In recent days, liberals have turned to ingenious ways of crossing the border. Some have been disguised as senior citizens taking a bus trip to buy cheap Canadian prescription drugs. After catching a half-dozen young vegans in blue-hair wig disguises, Canadian immigration authorities began stopping buses and quizzing the supposed senior citizens about Perry Como and Rosemary Clooney to prove that they were alive in the '50s.  "If they can't identify the accordion player on The Lawrence Welk Show, we become very suspicious about their age," an official said.

Canadian citizens have complained that the illegal immigrants are creating an organic-broccoli shortage, are buying up all the Barbara Streisand CD's, and are overloading the internet while downloading jazzercise apps to their cell phones.
"I really feel sorry for American liberals, but the Canadian economy just can't support them," an Ottawa resident said.  "After all, how many art-history majors does one country need?
