The Truth about the Battle of Liberty Place

It never ceases to amaze me how some “historians” or those who want to post blog articles about the South always leave about half the facts out of their articles. Such is the case with Nick Sacco in his article Reflections on the Battle of Liberty Place Monument and the Political Nature of Public Iconography at

Letts’ take a look shall we?

Mr. Sacco’s first paragraph he states the White league is made up of “ex-Confederates and white supremacist.” My question to Mr. Sacco is how do you know they were white supremacist ? By the inscription on the monument as you posted??? We will get to that later.

Anyway this battle was a uprising against the RECONSTRUTIONIST government of William P. Kellogg. You can read more here at Wili. to get a good background on the vent.

As Sacco goes on with his narrative he tells us that the crowd was made up of ex-Confederates. he does not tell us that that the Municipal Police is lead by no other that Confederate General James Longstreet and some 4,000 armed soldiers. That fact is glaring omitted.

Another fact that seems to be missing is P.G.T. Beauregard was an active member of the Reform party that believed Blacks should have voting rights. Oh well these are just they sort of facts that you come to expect the “other” side will deliberately overlook as that tap out their propaganda.

In his third paragraph Mr. Sacco wants to lecture us about race relations in the South— Jim Crow and such. Where races relations any better in the North??/ I seriously doubt it. In fact was the Jim Crow laws started in the Northern states??? I am certain they did. Of course being of superior intellect Mr. Sacco is gonna tell us what his interruption of the statue is.

Moving along, I am getting tired of typing, so I am gonna make a couple of comments and then give you a link to read. These are points I want you to pay attention to—

Sacco’s Italian comment– wrong.

The Inscription on the monument note what the links says about it

You can read the truth at

And my last comment think about this–

What is the difference between a white supremist and say a black civil rights activist??? none. But that is a post for another day.


Little known battles

The Battle of Billiams Creek Texas. Seeking something other than the Handbook of Texas reference.

Battle of Bloomfield, Iowa. Would like some records sources. I can find nothing but the online historical marker references.


Baker’s Fake News

Well folks I have finally got everything moved in the direction I need. Seems like Al mackey has been quite, at least he has been spreading as many lies as he had been in the past. Not to fear Rob Baker seems to have taken his place. However Baker is mostly whining because of the results of the presidential election.

I suppose that it comes as no surprise that, according to Baker, everyone who voted for Trump is a Confederate Flag waving racist. I assume this includes the blacks and Hispanics who voted for Trump????

Anyway Baker has a photo shopped image of Trump and the Confederate Battle flag posted. So what Baker, you are just promoting what has become a well used term today— FAKE NEWS See the image at’

Folks be sure to read Kevin Levins ignorant quote that Baker posted. Oh boy he shows his true colors.

Now let me say the photo below is just one of many that can be found online. I used it for no particular reason except it shows Clinton with the US flag.


Now let’s look at some more photos of the US flag shall we???

Photos from


Now let me say this, unlike Baker, it is not my intention to talk bad or disparage any flag in US history. I simply point out the TRUTH

Baker I say this to you, anythime you want to discuss the baggage carried by the US Flag and that baggage carried by the Confederate Battle Flag, I will be here. You are welcome to post a opposing view in a civil manner. Something you seldom allow on your pages.
