Memphis Citizens to Save Our Parks offers Forrest Commemorative Coin

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 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.

  1. I would like to donate to help you preserve the Confederate monuments in Memphis. I need a site to log into so I can do that. Can you please help? Thank you in advance.
