-- by Sara

The spirit of the Confederacy is alive and well -- and now available for just $99 (in three easy payments!) from The Bradford Exchange:

Also, apparently, doubles as a dog whistle:

Civil War Men's Sterling Silver Ring Shows Your Southern Pride! Exclusive Civil War Gift for History Enthusiasts!

Hold history in your hands with a dramatic jewelry exclusive that pays tribute to an unforgettable time in American history. Introducing the Civil War men's sterling silver ring, available only from The Bradford Exchange. Detailed with striking Civil War era symbols, this fine jewelry design is a handsome presentation that represents Southern pride and memorializes those who fought for the South during this turning point in our country.

Proudly wear this Civil War memorabilia, individually crafted of solid sterling silver for a gleaming finish. At the center, this Civil War men's sterling silver ring bears the Confederate flag and shield in rich red and blue enameling and trimmed in silver to boldly stand out against an inlay of genuine black onyx. C.S.A. (Confederate States of America) and the years of the Confederacy (1861-1865) are emblazoned on the banner below. As a special finishing touch, the inside of the band is engraved with "Pride of the South." What a stunning keepsake for you to treasure every day or give as a unique Civil War gift. Hurry, strong demand is expected. Order now!
However: I'm puzzled that it's missing that all-important secret compartment for your Viagra pill, which strikes me as a very serious oversight considering the audience.

Remember: Just eight shopping weeks till Father's Day!
