‘Iron cross on Washington descendant’s grave marker to be dedicated Saturday’
There are two Confederate uniforms I have.
One is a reproduction from a photograph, of the type uniform my great grandfather, Methodist circuit riding minister/MD, pre war, war time first an enlisted Confederate Soldier, then when the position was created, as a Confederate Chaplain.
The other is a recreation of my 5th cousin Lt. Col. John Augustine Washington was wearing when he was shot three times through the back.
When getting a Confederate Uniform which was not a chaplains, I picked John Washington.
I am cousins with General Robert E Lee, CSA, General Richard Taylor, CSA, and General Thomas Jonathan Jackson, CSA.
I am closer cousins to Stonewall than Washington.
But where Confederate people gather, there are usually an over abundance of generals Lees and Jacksons.
No one I knew of, knew about Lt. Col. Washington.
It is in none of the USA history books.
If one does a search of aid de Camps to General Robert Lee, Washington’s name is missing.
It is almost like the USA/DC does not want Americans to know they assassinated the great nephew of George Washington, the “Father of the Country”, last Washington to own and live at Mount Vernon, recognized head of the Washington family, very likely future president of the Confederate States of America, while he was carrying one of George Washington’s swords, and divided his possessions stolen from his body as the Centurions divided Jesus the Christ cloths.
Of course it could just be an oversight on the USA’s part.
Thats why I picked his Uniform to wear in honor of him, because he gave his life fighting evil and most Americans do not even know he ever existed.
But they can name the overpaid overgrown, juvenile delinquent professional sports players on many teams.
I honor all Confederates who fought against the child gang raping till death invading yankee war criminals!
The Ole Dog!
