The Autobiography of Joseph Le Conte
Confederate scientist who came west after the war, and went on to become one of the founders of the University of California
PLACE OF NO RETURN WILL CAPTURE YOUR HEART
The intriguing tale intertwines the stories of a Jewish widow, a mute southern boy, a black cook, and a bewitching Greek girl who supplants Anita in Elias' affections, and who is now living in an alcoholic haze. Part adventure, part romance, all captivating story, Place of No Return takes the reader to the depths of despair and the heights of love as it traces the circle of life through the eyes of Elias Palamara. Nothing since Gone With the Wind has so brilliantly captured the essence and richness of the South. http://www.anabethhill.com/contact.html

Two Brothers One North, One South. A Novel By David H. Jones
David H. Jones has given a number of presentations nationwide on the experiences of the Prentiss brothers, the 6th Regiment of Maryland Infantry and the final stage of the Petersburg Campaign in the American Civil War.
During three years of research for “Two Brothers: One North, One South”, he ventured into the swamps of Dinwiddie County, Virginia to rediscover the lost location where a pivotal event in the book took place.
Many of you have found the graves of some of our heroic ancestors of the Confederacy. There is a database that was developed by the SCV Texas Division's George Ballentine, who was one of the first men to recognize the need for a comprehensive searchable database of Confederate Veteran gravesites. George started the first data collection in the Texas Division, and inspired others to join the team, but crossed over the river before he could finish his work. Andrea and Wayne Prouse have picked up the colors, and the work continues.
It is being hosted SCV HQ: http://cgr.scv.org/
Andrea has been kind enough to provide a tutorial and instructions and they can be accessed in PDF Format by clicking on the following links:

This is an awesome video of a film that is held at the Library of Congress, but was made available online via the Smithsonian. I have heard a recording of the Rebel Yell before, but this is by far the best, as you can see the actual veterans doing the yell. Though the audio quality is a bit grainy, this video represents the power of digital history in making a unique piece of American history available to the world.
Check it out, as I am sure it will send a shiver up your spine.
What Did the Rebel Yell Sound Like?
Please visit the official SCV YouTube site at the following url:
Jeremy Davis is a fellow SCV Member in Cartersville (Occupied) Georgia who makes Confederate flags. He uses reference books to identify the flag you are looking for and can make an exact replica of it for you.
His prices are very reasonable and the quality outstanding.
Please consider our SCV compatriot for any flag you may need.
