MOSB – Georgia, Another Victory

Commander Martin N. Bell wins another victory in the Macon Confederate Monument Case, this time in Federal District Court in Macon Georgia, having already won an injunction from Georgia Superior Court Judge Rucker Smith forbidding the City of Macon from removing the two Confederate monuments until a ruling in a main state trial. Simply put the City of Macon sued to have the entire case moved to Federal Court and we contended it should stay in the Georgia court system and we prevailed. The hearing was heard at 10:00am this morning, November 18, 2020 at the Federal Courthouse in Macon Georgia in front of Judge Hugh Lawson.

 

 “I enjoyed meeting Judge Lawson today and greatly appreciate his decision in our favor. I wish to thank not only my attorney Walker Chandler but also the attorneys for the City, Duke Groover and Elizabeth Hall, all of whom were very kind, courteous and professional. In addition I would like to thank all of my supporters who showed up for the trial today. As a military historian I wish to quote Prime Minister Churchill at this junction as the Battle of Britain ended;” “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

 

“This has been quite an eventful week for our side; Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

(1) Monday, we kicked off our “Macon Monuments Matter” Campaign complete with yard signs, highway signs and magnetic signs for car doors etc.

(2) Tuesday, the Macon Bibb Commission bill from committee to reallocate $300,000 dollars from Splost Funds for bridge and road repairs in order to move the Confederate Monuments failed in the Commission meeting.

(3) Wednesday we prevailed in the Federal Court hearing.”

 

I am proud to say we supported Lester Miller for Mayor and I believe we share the dream of bringing the citizens of this city together. If just one of the commissioners who voted to remove the Confederate monuments would reverse their vote and join with Commissioners Allen, Jones, Shepherd and Wynn we could stop this nonsense of removing the monuments, reallocating Splost funds away from Storm Drainage, Bridge and Road Repairs and for goodness sake do something about all the horrendous crime in this city.

 

 

In the meantime, it is high time certain news media stop the fake news and post the real drawing of the original Macon action plan which has always included the Confederate Monuments in place and take the fake picture off your web site. We wish to thank Macon Bibb Alternative News for their honest and accurate reporting of our story from the beginning.

2020 Capt. Wirz Memorial Service, Andersonville, GA

The 45th annual Capt. Henry Wirz Memorial Service will be held in the town of Andersonville, GA on Sunday afternoon, November 8, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. 

The Service is sponsored annually by the Alexander H. Stephens SCV Camp 78 in Americus, GA.  The public is invited to attend.  In case of inclement weather, the Memorial Service will be held in the Village Hall in Andersonville.

 

Capt. Wirz was the Commandant of Andersonville Prison Camp in 1864-1865.  He was arrested after the War, taken to Washington, D. C, and tried before a Military Tribunal.  In a Trial that lasted several months and has been called the most Unfair Trial in American History by several historians, he was found guilty and hung on November 10, 1865.  He was found guilty of murdering 13 Yankee prisoners, although no prisoner’s body NOR a single name of a victim was ever produced.  After the hanging, the Yankees cut up his body, and exhibited the bones about the country.  In 2020 there are still some of his bones that are on public exhibit in a Maryland Museum.

 

The Camp 78 Honor Guard (Muckalee Guards) and Mr. Robert Coleman’s Anderson Battery Artillery Unit will participate in the Service.  John Carroll is the Camp 78 Commander.

 

Guest Speaker for the Service will be Mrs. Lunelle McCallister of Temple Terrace, Florida.  She is the wife of well known attorney David McCallister.  Mrs. McCallister is very active in the Florida Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and a number of other Southern Heritage organizations.
