This Saturday, I’ll be marching with my friends in the Sons of Confederate Veterans in the West Monroe-Monroe Louisiana Mardi Gras Parade. It’s about a five mile march, and I’ll shoot my musket, be in Confederate uniform, and have a grand time. The crowd has been extremely receptive, with only a few being assholes and giving us a hard time. These few don’t really bother me, as I know they probably just need a history lesson. I’m going to work the SCV booth in W. Monroe during the day Saturday (Feb. 10) and then march with the boys. Lineup is at 4:00 pm. If you’re there, look for me. I’ll be the rebel soldier with the long hair. God bless the South. If you would like a pic of me in my Confederate uniform, write me and I’ll send you one. firstname.lastname@example.org.
