Virginia March

Date: November 22, 2006
To: “‘Bill Graham, III'”

Dear Bill,
Terry Lee has concurred that we heed the advice of Daryl Starnes
and pick a date in early Spring to finish this. We end a March in
Tallahassee some time in early March. Possibly shortly after that
would be a good time. I’ll take it up with Daryl, Brandon Dorsey,
and Grayson Jennings, and Dennis Beeton of DixieOutFitter in Madison
Heights, Va. I don’t want to see him out of the loop, because we
would not have made it as far as we did had it not been for he and
his wife. God bless you and thanks very much . However, you had
better be careful, your enthusiasm will cause you to chair some
part of this endeavor. I spoke with Fred Kunkle of The Washington
Post , yesterday, as he and other media types want to know where
we are. Yes we do need money for all kinds of expenses concurred
doing this.
Public Relations

Doing the course of a day we not only march with the Flag, we teach,
we listen, we try undo all the negative public relations laid on
the public. I carry and autograph a copy of the handbook The Un-Civil
War, by the infamous Mike Scruggs, historical Modern Day Confederate
Hero Shirt , and the March Across Virginia Shirt by Southern Heritage
411 designed especially for this historic journey. People along
the way want to have a part of you and your message . When a baby
is in front of and you give him a shirt and he brings back his little
sister, what do you do. You think about that here these kids are
wearing and wanting to wear a shirt with the Southern Cross on it,
and even more so, the message that it gives to all that see it not
only has the Southern Cross but a picture of a Black man in the
uniform of the South; or when you have someone in front of you who
needs to read some real truth, or just to promote the truth; then
you give away one of Mike Scruggs mighty fine books. Then there
are all those autographed flags of which some occasion along the
way that someone will do something worthy of a gift. The bottom
line is that a great deal of what we do is PR, and there are components
this that cost.

All the other expenses related that people don’t see; fuel and maintenance
cost of vehicles, clothes kept cleaned, film and other related supplies
to record and document activities, postage. It goes on, but trust
me, it is worth very dime in this war that is being raged against
my babies whose future of being Southern and all debts owed them
for being Southern are in jeopardy of not being paid.
Your Brother,
