Crackers and Cavaliers


Stonewall Jackson and J.E.B. Stuart … served together at West Point. This is hilarious. It is a dialogue between Virginia Crackers and Virginia Cavaliers over the mutual threat posed by Yankeedom.

James Edwards at the grave of Nathan Bedford Forrest, Confederate general and founder of the Ku Klux Klan, a Cracker hero in the mold of Andrew Jackson:

The Ku Klux Klan … I wonder where that came from, maybe from the Cracker Nation?

  1. Jackson was a serious Protestant who believed in salvation by faith alone, and took that principle seriously. To the point of fatalism, or predestiantion, in that he is often quoted as saying things like he felt as safe in bed as in battle. It was God’s decision on when he would die.

    Jackson from what I’ve read of his ancestry, had English, Scotch-Irish and even some Pennsylvania Dutch roots which would be common in western Virginia, west of the Blue Ridge. There are a couple of Jackson family associations and they have the ancestry pretty well figured out.

    I am very familiar with the family who brought the Jackson family, the ancestors of Stonewall, into what today is West Virginia.

  2. Instructive videos. In the first, you can see (hear) the Fatal Flaw of the Southern Secession: the Old South tried to secede AWAY. Defensive mentality. Almost always loses. By the time Lee went North, summer 1863, it was too late; the North had already mobilized its terrific demographic and war industrial superiority. This time, we are going to secede TOWARD. Once Alaska, Texas, most of the high plains and midwest states, plus southern states break away from USA, we will have to get Nat’l Guard and militia units organized into a quick strike into the beltway corridor in order to take down the treasonous BRA/ZOG regime; that done, the rust belters and west coast ethno-cosmics will be (relatively) EZ. And this time, unlike the Old South and its fight for feudalism and slavery, the New Confederation will be fighting for freedom against globalist, neo-feudal enslavement. First Tuesday in November, 2012. Then: 60 days to Fort Sumter.

  3. I am a little surprised that Lee didn’t reference Jackson as the greatest. More context would be interesting. As to Jackson’s Prot. evangelical faith, fatalism is denied by Protestants generally and Reformed (trad. Episcopalian, Presb. Anglican, etc.) especially. Ephesians 1:11 perspicuously and summarily teaches this: “In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will.” Fatalism is essentially mindless as to second causes. Christianity vitally encompasses them: “Therefore, my beloved , as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”
