Immortal 600 Monument
Our Confederate officers of the Immortal Six Hundred will be remembered as being honored with a monument to their sacrifices for their family, and country, the Confederate States of America. Also a respectful cemetery that's bordered with a beautiful brick wall.
Thanks to everyone that made this possible.
“…We must forevermore do honor to our heroic dead. We must forevermore cherish the sacred memories of those four terrible but glorious years of unequal strife. We must forevermore consecrate in our hearts our old battle flag of the Southern Cross – not now as a political symbol, but as the consecrated emblem of an heroic epoch. The people that forget its heroic dead are already dying at the heart, and we believe we shall be truer and better citizens of the United States if we are true to our past.”
Confederate Veteran Rev. Randolph Harrison McKim
Confederate Officers Denied Again
The Immortal Six Hundred SCV Camp 2600 made a formal request to have 19 memorial markers placed in the Cemetery at Fort Pulaski National Monument.
On Saturday, August 24, 2013 the Immortal Six Hundred SCV Camp 2600 received a letter from Fort Pulaski National Monument (Park) Superintendent Melissa Memory.
In her letter dated August 23, 2013 Superintendent Memory denied our Confederate dead memorial markers for the Cemetery.
Commander William J. Hagin
Our ancestors thoughts:
“All that the South has ever desired was that the Union as established by our forefathers should be preserved and that the government as originally organized should be administered in purity and truth.”
Robert E. Lee
“I loved the old government in 1861. I loved the old Constitution yet. I think it is the best government in the world, if administered as it was before the war. I do not hate it; I am opposing now only the radical revolutionists who are trying to destroy it. I believe that party to be composed, as I know it is in Tennessee, of the worst men on Gods earth – men who would not hesitate at any crime, and who have only one object in view – to enrich themselves.”
Nathan Bedford Forrest, in an interview shortly after the war
“Instead of friends, I see in Washington only mortal enemies. Instead of loving the old flag of the stars and stripes, I see in it only the symbol of murder, plunder, oppression, and shame.”
Rose O’Neal Greenhow, Confederate Spy
“To tar the sacrifices of the Confederate soldier as simple acts of racism, and reduce the battle flag under which he fought to nothing more than the symbol of a racist heritage, is one of the great blasphemies of our modern age”.
James Webb-Secretary of Navy And Assistant Secretary of Defense under U.S. President Ronald Regan and current U.S. Senator (D.VA.) (Born Fighting: How the Scots-Irish Shaped America, New York: Broadway Books, 2004, p. 225)

Fort Pulaski, Savannah Georgia
Fort Pulaski, Interior
Fort Pulaski, Savannah Georgia: Immortal 600 prisoners were starved by yankee troops while the yankees themselves had more than they could eat. If you look very closely between the bunks, there's a transparent Soldier standing in front of the bars. His feet/legs start where the wood meets the brick flooring. On older computers you might have to move a little to the left or right to see the image. The photo was taken at Fort Pulaski in December 2007.
