We are Christians and traditionalists,
wives, mothers and grandmothers, employees and retirees. SWSH was founded
in 2002 by two women in west Florida in response to attacks on Confederate
heritage in Escambia and Walton Counties.
Because these were merely
a part of the war on Confederate history occurring at the time, the founders
saw the necessity of an Internet-based group whose members might live anywhere
in the USA, or outside it where the Internet was available at the time.
The organization was allowed
to go dormant after the Florida ssues were addressed, although members
continued to support Southern heritage and broader conservative issues
With renewed attacks on Confederate
artifacts, particularly flags and monuments, due to a fabricated connection
to the tragic shooting in Charleston, SC in 2015, it has become clear that
the women of SWSH need to not only reactivate the organization but to grow
it, and to do our part to save and strengthen our heritage.
information, address, contact persons, etc., will be added soon.)
The women of SWSH are already
engaged in activities to defend, strengthen and promote Confederate history
and heritage, as that is a requiarement for membership. They may be members
of another organization, such as United Daughters of the Confederacy,
Order of the Confederate Rose, the Virginia Flaggers or other flagger groups,
activisim groups such as Save Southern Heritage Florida, local historical
preservation groups, civil war study groups and re-enacting groups.

them from attacks and falsehoods whether they come those misguided by Victor
Fables, or those who know the truth but choose to lie about us and ours...
Women who are not members
of any history or heritage organizations, but who are actively working
any of several proSouthernern areas, may also qualify for membership in
SWSH. "Actively working" includes activities and involvement such
as writing letters to the editor of your local newspaper, distributing
literature, lobbying your elected officials, working on or attending proSouthern
events and demonstrations, or being a "keyboard warrior" on the Internet.
Additionally, SWSH plans
to fill a niche not currently being addressed (and which will be complimentary
to activities by other heritage organisations) -- that of expressing,
publicly and formally via press releases, the Southern woman's view of
current events which affect issues important to her. This will also have
the benefit of increasing the number of voices raised in defense of our
region and its beleagured culture.
