About Stand Up and Fight!
So often we get hit with negative news, that it’s really encouraging to see folks out there who are using such amazing musical and artistic talent to create something really special and uplifting for ALL our veterans! Such is the case with Stand Up and Fight – a recent song and music video created by Missouri Sons of Confederate Veterans members, which can be seen on the Edwards Productions, LLC website, and purchased for 99 cents at Tunecore.
Stand Up and Fight, which has been featured on the SCV Headquarters and Abbeville Institute Facebook pages, is an awesome tribute to our Southern veterans here in Missouri and throughout America – as well as to those people who continue to stand up and remember their sacrifice today. The video not only includes vintage artwork of battles and other scenes created after the War Between the States, but also has a lot of great photography too. Who knows, with appearances by the Virginia Flaggers, photos by Judy Smith, the I-95 flag raising, various Sons of Confederate Veterans Camps at the Missouri Capital and many parades and other noteworthy locations around the South, maybe you’ll even see yourself standing up in honor of our Veterans! We think you’ll agree that Hezekiah Brown – who also happens to be a noteworthy historian and non- fiction author – has really done a great job here. In speaking with Hezekiah Brown, we also learned that the Confederate veteran, World War 1 and World War 2 veterans pictured in the video are also his ancestors too. We hope you enjoy, and help spread the word about this amazing tribute to our Veterans!
