LEE IN THE MOUNTAINS by Donald Davidson (Davidson was one of the 11 Southron Agrarians from Vanderbilt University.)
“The mountains mentioned in the title of this poem refer both to the mountains of North Carolina, where Lee had hoped to escape with the Army of Northern Virginia in the closing days of the War (Jefferson Davis vetoed the idea), and the mountains of the Shenandoah Valley, where Lee spent the last days of his life.”
No question, IF Lee had known the consequences of his surrender he would have gone to the Mountains:
“Governor, if I had foreseen the use those people designed to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox Courthouse; no sir, not by me. Had I foreseen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in this right hand.”
General Robert E. Lee, to Texas Gov. Stockdale, Aug 1870
Lee’s desire to retreat to the Mountains, must be understood in context, by General George Washington’s statement, 90 years earlier.
To paraphrase George Washington what Washington stated at Valley Forge: “If all else fails, I will retreat up the valley of [Tennessee], plant my flag on the Blue Ridge, rally around the Scotch-Irish of that region, and make my last stand for liberty amongst a people who will never submit to [Globalist] tyranny whilst there is a man left to draw a trigger.”
Brothers & Compatriots; All Else has failed, temporally. Our people, white Anglo-Celtic Southerners, face cultural destruction and our demise as a people. The Solution, Lord willing, is Lee in the Mountains.
This is the scripture used for Raspail’s “The Camp of the Saints”
Revelation: 20:9 –
And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
We are all being encompassed.
They have raised the Black Flag, shouting No Quarter! Make no mistake, they wish to exterminate us as a race. It is happening as I write. We must, some number of us, move to the Celtic Fringe, for Real community. The Celtic Fringe (Mountains from MD to N. GA, west to central TENN and KY) is STILL large majority White. We must (or die trying) establish our communities in venues that are defensible. Cities and suburbs aint gonna do it. Being a Lone Ranger aint gonna do it either.
It is time for Lee in the Mountains.
