The beginning

Hi! During my trip to the grand re-opening of Beauvoir during the first week of June, I realized the Confederate Veteran magazine needed a presence on the Internet. I decided to start this blog as a beginning. I don't really have anything profound to say, but the Veteran is an information source to our members. However, in the 21st Century, information is transmitted faster than ever before in history. I felt this would be a good way to let SCV members know about their magazine. Please let me know what you think at
