OCTOBER 1, 1864 Nashville Dispatch

“I am a Confederate Soldier, have been a Confederate Soldier and will die a Confederate soldier. I have been true to my country, have never disgraced it by any of my acts, but have been found guilty and condemned to suffer. Had I been allowed, I could have produced witnesses to prove my innocence, and that I never left my command, and, up to the time of my capture, have been a faithful soldier, acting under the orders of my superior officers, I have been tried as a citizen of Tennessee, I am not one. I am a native of Okolona Mississippi.”
These are the last words of Southern Confederate Soldier Jordan C Mosely, who had been captured by the Yankee soldiers who occupied the Confederate Capitol of Tennessee, tried by the occupying U.S. government’s military commission and found guilty of being a guerrilla and of the murder of T Y Brown a member of the invading 5th Tennessee U.S. cavalry (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE 5th TENNESSEE CONFEDERATE CAVALRY).
Our Soldier was hanged by the invaders of our State, and I wonder how many of those who claim to be Confederates this day October 25 2014, can claim these same words……..
“I have been true to my country; have never disgraced it by any of my acts”
If YOU claim this day October 25, 2014 to be a Confederate: CAN YOU CLAIM THAT YOU ARE, OR HAVE BEEN TRUE TO YOUR COUNTRY, (THE CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA)?
IF YOU HAVE NOT REGISTERED AS A CONFEDERATE CITIZEN VOTER, THEN I AM OF THE OPINION THAT YOU HAVE NOT IN FACT BEEN TRUE TO YOUR COUNTRY!!!!!

    I was born in Southern Illinois,(Hamilton Co.), but have felt my whole life I was a Confederate. My grandmother told me we had family on both sides, however, I have found no records of and family that I know of. My wife grew up in Smyrna, TN and due to custody orders regarding our children, forced to stay in IL. Now that the children are grown, we have moved to Smyrna and wish to become citizens of the Confederacy. We will be becoming citizens as soon as legally possible. Long live the Confederacy!!
