This site is respectively dedicated to my heroes of the War Between the States:
Captain Champ Ferguson & his "Boys", who faced certain & swift death if caught while fighting for the Causes they believed in; the South, their mountains & the honor of Champ's family;...

to General John Hunt Morgan & his "Raiders", who showed great dash, courage, & chivalry in fighting for their dear Kentucky; and of who's death still brings a tear to my eyes & makes me burn with anger when I read & think on how such a gallant man was treated in the end by his foe;...
to my Scobee, Moore, Dooley, & Grimes ancetors (Confederate & Union) who fought for the Causes that they believed in with all their hearts;... These pages are dedicated thus to your memories....

"Ne Obliviscaris" (Do Not Forget!)

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things.
The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic
feeling of a person who thinks that nothing is worth war
is much uglier. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight -
- nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety and well being
-- is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free,
unless made and kept so by the exertions and blood of better men than himself."

~ John Stewart Mill (1806-1873) ~
