You could be a person who started out with nothing, and through the grace of God, hard work and opportunity you earned a fortune. You could be a person who one day went down and bought a lottery ticket which brought you vast sums of money. You could be someone born into a family of great wealth. Whichever you are, if you have a deep love of the South and would like to use your blessings from God for good purpose, than get a cup of coffee, and let's visit awhile. Read More...
The Confederate War College was created as a place where individuals from the separate elements of the Southern movement could come together, contribute through articles and essays thoughts on our history, current events, and the future of the South. Melting pot might be one concept which could fit here. My experience since 1994, has been that the different elements within the Southern movement have very odd relationships and we are not all motivated by the same beliefs.
Here at the War College, we seek discussion by members of the various groups, and by non- aligned people of Southern ancestry concerning the future of Dixie.
This site retains the authority to publish or reject submitted articles. We are a family friendly site and will reject automatically any articles using profanity, or denying the existence of a Christian God. We will reject any racially motivated writings. I accept as an article of my faith that all humanity is the creation of God, and that each is in possession of a soul.
A secondary purpose of the Confederate War College is to introduce the idea of the study of the strategic aspects of the war, including the use of simulation as a teaching technique, to broaden the base of those who could than transfer their knowledge of military strategy towards political thinking. For example, Clausewitz work On War, was written before the American Civil War, did influence American military leaders, and certainly includes much about the politics of war, and of governance.
Simulation is a much underutilized teaching technique, especially in the field of history. The Confederate War College hopes to first attract a large base of students, willing to pay the fees required to study and learn military operational planning methodologies, and to learn simulation gaming. Eventually, it is our hope to use the most talented of students as a cadre to conduct large scale battle simulations for corporations, organizations, etc.
Just as re-enactments simulate the physical aspects of campaigning in the mid 19th century, so simulation can provide the experience of military operations and leadership at the army through brigade level. These skills are transferable to peaceful pursuits. They teach analysis, problem recognition and resource marshaling and allocation. It also teaches a proven methodology of thought for addressing any and all types of challenges. Nothing not already available to the public will be discussed or offered. One textbook for this course will be Military Lessons of the Civil War.
One thing the Confederate War College can do, over time, is develop and establish a reputation for using simulation to teach and train.
Another purpose of the War College will be to explore, record, and circulate information regarding legal activities which 501C3 Not-for-profit organizations can conduct to influence government policy. The current heritage organizations have refused to conduct operations routinely executed by not-for-profits, including those organizations in direct opposition to the Southern heritage organizations.
The Confederate War College hopes to first attract a large base of students, willing to pay the fees required to study and learn military operational planning methodologies, and to learn simulation gaming.
The purpose of the War College is to operate outside the parochial politics of the respective organizations to instigate discussion, contemplation, and possibly cooperation. Further, to stimulate thought about modernization of the various organizations to take advantage of technical progress, and enhanced communications venues.
