Efforts continue to preserve the historic Memphis parks from a revisionist PC city council and honor the memory and sacrifices of the great Confederate leaders and soldiers who fought to defend Memphis from the Yankee invasion during the War Between the States. One of General Forrest's most daring raids occurred in Memphis when he freed a number or political prisoners and attempted capture of Union generals headquartered there.
The group Citizens To Save Our
Parks in Memphis is offering a commemorative coin as a fundraiser to help in
its efforts to prevent the re-naming of Forrest Park, Confederate Park, and
Jefferson Davis Park by the Memphis City Council. See http://citizenstosaveourparks.org and
click on "Background" for more information. If you are interested in helping in this fight for heritage preservation, see the above website
and click on "Merchandise". The
coin is $11, shipping included.
