Dear Commander Butler,
In order to play the March Across Dixie for three nights and the
commercial announcements that run a week before it shows was approximately
$2,800.00. My little brother shouldered the entire cost for doing
the same thing here in Asheville, and Buncombe County three weeks
ago, and I have received more questions from local students and
their teachers about the March and the War Between The states and
what is happening in America than ever before. Terry Lee and I have
worked out the same deal with Charter in Maryville. However, I can’t
just stop there. I need to be able to travel into Maryville. I want
my babies and that community to see our vigilance . I want to attend
some of their basketball games also while I have the momentum. God
bless you Sir and Jim Maddox , and Michael Lee Beck, as well as
the Tennessee Division of the Sons Of Confederate Veterans for having
the confidence you have shown in me . I believe with all my heart
that there is something special about Maryville.

However, Commander Butler, unfortunately the battle front for me
is not just Maryville. I need a war chest just like Kirk D. and
the rest of SLRC. I am no lawyer, and as they have indicated, to
do the street fighting in the court of public opinion as I do .
I have to begin raising my own funds. As I begin to give expert
testimony in the Jacqueline Duty case, I cannot forget that another
battle looms on the front in Kentucky. I cannot forget my babies
in Travelers Rest, South Carolina. Neither can I forget my Southern
babies in the entire State of Pennsylvania who have been told; that
the South don’t want that flag, and they don’t either, so they began
banning it in their school systems. If I can raise $10,000.00, it
won’t be enough, but I can tell you this for a fact; the enemies
of our South will suffer major set backs in this war they continue
to wage upon us. I hate with a passion not being able to at least
move about.
Your brother,
