I have written several times about coats of arms, properly called heraldry. Many people seem to think that each family has a coat of arms issued for use by all people bearing the same last name. Of course, that's not true.
Now a new variation has appeared: Confederate Coats of Arms. An online site has a mission statement "... to advance Dixie culture through knowledge, heraldry artwork and…"
Gee, I didn't even know that the Confederacy issued coats of arms!
I'll let you judge the authenticity of the arms issued by the Confederate College of Heraldry at http://www.geocities.com/confederateheraldry/indexCCH.html
