Council Votes 10 to 2 to Protect Owners of Property Designated “Historic” from Bureaucratic Abuse

A proposal to amend the Greenville County Zoning Ordinance and allow the Greenville County Historic Preservation Commission, an unelected body, to designate private property as historic without the permission of the property owner was about to glide “under the radar” and deprive the owners of property designated as such of their constitutional property rights was discovered by the Greenville County Taxpayers Association before it became law.

The proposed change would have allowed the Greenville County Historic Preservation Commission to designate private property as historic without the consent of the owner and would put property improvements and other changes to the property under the oversight and direction of the commission, with powers greater than eminent domain, according to Taxpayer Association President Robert G. “Butch” Taylor.

“The Quest for Liberty is Timeless”

The world’s largest Confederate flag, a 30’ x 70’, was proudly raised at the new Confederate Memorial Park in Tampa, Fl.  on Saturday, April 25, one day before the state’s official Confederate Memorial Day.  Through the tireless efforts of many people, a first class park has been constructed on property owned by a private individual who is a member of the Florida Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.  Marion Lambert bought the property close to the intersection of I-4 and I-75 with the plan of putting up a memorial park and the largest flag pole possible.

The Jubal Early Camp #556 of Tampa and other area assisting camps  was responsible for most of the park work and the carrying out of the dedication event.

The Atlanta Campaign PDF Print E-mail

April 24 to November 16, 1864

Many historians date the Atlanta campaign from late April 1864 to September 2nd, 1864, the September 2 date coinciding with the withdrawal of General Hood’s Confederate forces from Jonesboro and the official surrender by Atlanta Mayor, James Calhoun.  However, that leaves out an important part of the history. It was not until November 12 that Sherman destroyed Atlanta by ordering all buildings except homes and churches to be burned.  Many homes and churches, however, were caught up in the conflagration.

Union forces had begun to probe Confederate strength south of Ringgold, Georgia, on April 24, with the objective of a major advance on Atlanta, an important Confederate railroad center and supply depot.  Up until the middle of May, General Joe Wheeler’s Confederate cavalry were able to frustrate Sherman’s enormous army of over 100,000 men attempting to advance toward Atlanta.
