The Newton County Board of Commissioners has voted to remove the Confederate Monument from the Covington Square. This is an outright attack on United States history.  
This money is being raised for a Legal Defense Trust Fund. The proceeds from this site will go directly to the attorney, Walker Chandler.
Please share to like minded people whether they reside in Georgia or out of state.  We are going NATIONAL with this fight. We have decided to take a stand in Newton County, Georgia against the removal of ANY monuments from public places whether they be Confederate, Founding Fathers, Presidents or Civil Rights figures.  Oral arguments will be April 13 in the Georgia Court of Appeals and we believe a victory will establish a precedent throughout Georgia and possibly the nation.  Please give to help our cause.

The past influences the future. William Faulkner famously said that 
“The past is never dead. It's not even past.”
Here  on the Square of Covington we are surrounded by memories of the past, some of it good, some of it bad.  Neither should be forgotten.
 
 Shall the old buildings and the old courthouse be condemned for having been built by those less perfect than we think we are? Shall we ignore the feeling of peace they exude and deny them to our grandchildren?
 
Should we bend the facts of history to fit a modern collection of feelings?  Shall we go over to the obelisk and chisel off the names of those veterans who modern, self-righteous judges condemn?  Is any great person or any once-thought-noble cause safe from the wicked concept that  we are better than our forebears? Might even statues  of Martin Luther King be torn down by those offended in the future?
 
Shall we erect new, modern monuments to those now in vogue, only to realize that they may not last even a hundred years, once we have given in to the passing passions of the today?
 
What are monuments if they are but temporary?  What are old buildings if we treat them as nothing more than rapidly-depreciating boxes  of  wood, of brick,  and nowadays, alas!,  of rolled and painted steel?    Are our grandchildren to be deprived of all that is old, revered, artistically lovely, and memorable?   Shall the world  become nothing but subdivisions and sanitized  shopping centers?
 
Shall we endorse a modern, intolerant notion that evolution trumps historical reenactments, remembering the bravery and fortitude of American soldiers, and content neutrality and free expression in public celebrations on public streets? 
Will removing highly-visible Confederate monuments that once tranquilly stood on our squares be enough?   Will removals permanently please those who neither understand nor wish to understand the  emotions and intent of those who erected them.?  Or will it simply bring on a greater hunger for unlimited historical revision? 
Who among you can ever forget the inner workings of the Ministry of Truth in the 1948 novel  1984?  We invite all of our fellow citizens  to read that  book and to decide if they wish to erect the systems of government that are constantly revising history itself in the interests of the preservation of power by tyrants?
 
Governments across the nation are now free to allow (and to disallow) the painting of racially-charged slogans in large letters upon their—as opposed to the public’s—streets and sidewalks.
​The entire notion of governments as constituting separate entities with Free Speech rights of their own which can be contrary to the rights of the majority of the people they profess to represent is dangerous. If uncircumscribed, the newly-minted “government speech” doctrines ignore the fact that governments are run by factions—which is to say, individuals—with agendas of their own. Those agendas usually center around the desire for reelection and retention of power—desires factions may create and inflame by slavish caterings to the issues of the day, issues which have often been in turn created and inflamed by the press and political immoralists for their own ends.
 
People the world over sing Auld Lang Syne.  That means The Good Old Days.   The first stanza and the chorus you know:
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet
For days of auld lang syne
 
Robert Burns was not a perfect man.  Should we quit singing his songs, this man who wrote  “A Man’s A Man for A’ That” which he ended
Then let us pray that come it may,
(As come it will for a' that,)
That Sense and Worth, o'er a' the earth,
Shall bear the gree, an' a' that.
For a' that, an' a' that,
It's coming yet for a' that,
That Man to Man, the world o'er,
Shall brothers be for a' that.
 
So let’s take  cups of kindness, shall we, as we ponder our common history as Americans and citizens of Newton County.
