Mississippi License Plates
At the 2005 MS Division, SCV, convention, the Division
renewed its pledge to preserve/conserve MS's original Confederate
Battle flags. Show your support for your Division and our Flags
by purchasing a Mississippi Sons of Confederate Veterans "vanity"
car tag today (if you haven't already done so)! If you've already
done so, please continue to purchase the tags when tag replacement time
When you purchase a MS SCV car tag, $26 of your
purchase price comes directly to the MS Division. The
majority of these funds are used for the restoration of the original MS
flags in the Old Capitol Collection in Jackson. The remainder being
used to fight heritage violations.
The Mississippi division has to date restored nine original
Confederate Battle flags and two more are in process, at a total cost
of approximately $100,000! Thus
conserved, these flags should now last for at least two-hundred
more years! What a gesture to our noble Confederate
Restoration of these storied emblems is exceedingly expensive, with typical conservation costs ranging from $3,000 to $27,000 per flag. This vital work is done by hand, using the latest methodologies and state-of-the-art materials. One of the finest conservation services in the nation performs all the work in-house in West Virginia.
If not conserved, these most-precious artifacts of our
history -- the very "colors" that our Patriot forebears fought and died
under -- will simply crumble into dust. We can't let that happen!
