Mountain Making Festival

On Saturday October 23, and Sunday October 24, 2005, I had the
opportunity to attend the Mountain Making Festival at the invitation
of LT.Commander Mike Beck of the Morristown Camp of the Sons Of
Confederate Veterans.

It was a pleasure to sit in the Sons Camp and converse with the
general public about Southern Heritage and the need for the throngs
of those who visited to become involved in the day to day affairs
of the body politic that now threatens our Southland with the
intent of destroying all things Southern via their invasion of
out school boards, chamber of commerce,and political bodies etc..

I was especially impressed by the number of Black participants
who with their children visited our encampment , took all the
information we gave them , bought and loved my historic Dixie
OutFitter shirt. One young Black man about the age of 23, remarked
to me after sizing me up in my Confederate uniform as I sat with
my flag in the dining area ; sir you are the moment of truth,
and I respect you for standing for that.
