It is June 28, 2015 and this is the National Raise Your Battle Flag Day.  I am making this video in support of the Confederate Battle Flag because it does have a place in this nation's history.

Colonel Lou Aka Lou Millet - Johnny Reb 1960s Conservative Records

It is June 27, 2015.  Some fools have planned to use this day for burn the Confederate Battle Flag parties.  I am not going to do that.  Instead I am going to pay tribute to Johnny Reb.  In this video, I have a song for you called "Johnny Reb" by Colonel Lou.  Colonel Lou is believed to be Lou Millet.  Lou Millet was born in Louisiana in 1926.  I could not find a death date for him so he may still be alive.  I have two copies of this record.  I would really love to get one of these autographed by Lou.  This record was pressed around the mid 1960s on the Conservative Records label (catalog number: 140).  I am going to play the record on an Audiotronics 304E turntable from the 1970s.  The song is very fitting for today because it was cold and rainy.  This is a great song.  I can play this record over and over again.  Thank you for watching and honoring Johnny Reb.

The 210th Anniversary Of The End Of The First Barbary War

Today is the 210th Anniversary of the end of the First Barbary War (May 10, 1801 to June 10, 1805).  It is certainly an overlooked conflict in history.  In this case, it is no accident that the War is overlooked considering that it was started due to Islamic aggression and included the slavery of White males.  The conflict ended with the United States military defeat of the Barbary Muslims.  The First Barbary War marked the first time that the United States' Flag was raised in victory on foreign soil.
