have been on your site for the last few days and have thoroughly
enjoyed the content.
This site was brought to my attention by a gentleman in Liverpool,
Bob Jones, who I will see on September 15 to begin a few days
tour of the sites connected with the CSS Alabama, the "DIXIE" Liverpool
However, I am responding not as contribution to your site,
but rather, to address the issue of Liverpool and her response
during our War Between the States 1861-65.
Our Union counterparts continue to consider the WBTS as a "CIVIL
WAR". We here in the South still continue to resist this terminology
as our Ancestors, Political Government, etc. never ever had
any desire to overthrow the Government of the United States.
By the Constitution adopted ( Revolutionary War), the Southern
States or for that matter any Northern State could secede from
the Union if not satisfied and for sure 80 or so years after
the fight for American Independence, we were not and as fed
up with the Yankee Government, their tariffs, restraints of
trade, etc. and therefore the WBTS.
To my thinking seeing that our fight for Independence and a
new Country and a new Government doesn't qualify as a "CIVIL
WAR". Therefore Liverpool and Great Britain to our judgment
weren't assisting or abetting in another's "CIVIL WAR". Our
plight today for Vindication of the good names of our Ancestors,
our Heritage and Southern History is under severe attack. Reparations
for those descendants of Slaves, we as descendants of Confederates
are due them as well, the Union forces burned, raped and reigned
havoc on women, children, farms, cities, free blacks as well
as slaves, a "WAR" on civilians.
As Commander of my Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp here in
Virginia, we have contacted the National Organization and procured
Certificates of Appreciation for the City of Liverpool and a
few others who assisted us in the WBTS and continue to enhance
the Confederacy with the organization of a "CIVIL WAR TRAIL"
In closing, I would like to add that my Wells family has been
here in Virginia for 350+ years, and our first Ancestor came
here from England. That influence, characteristics, slang,
etc. continue in the family today. I guess we will always be
English no matter how far removed we are.
