Dear Todd,

Below is a list of names of Black men recommended that Emily contact
who had relatives who fought under General Forrest who would be
glad to help her. Contact Ed Butler or Doctor Bradley to get address
or telephone numbers or contact information. I also suggest that
you should try and get a copy of March Across Dixie Documentary.
It has a speech by Stan Armstrong and his love for the memory of
Nathan Bedford Forest. It would be even more powerful, if you could
play the made for television version of March Across Dixie on your
cable channel for three nights that it is edited for. You can go
to the web site : and get a copy of
the DVD, or call it could help tremendously. I shall forward this
message to Stan Darby in Florida, he too can help get you in touch
with Mr..Windbush, and possibly the other men. I have an interview
with WGNS in Murfreesboro at 3:o’clock this afternoon via telephone.
Please tell Emily’s mom and dad that Terry Lee and I appreciate
their letter of thanks. It was an honor for us to come and stand
beside those young people in their stand for our homeland and General
Forest. Commander Butler and Commander will probably be in Franklin
today. If you have to call Commander Jim Maddox at (423) 854-9299,
tell him you need to get to Commander Butler or Bradley with this
request; he too will help you. He should be in Franklin also. I
will also forward this email to Terry Lee and Mr.. Barber because
they can direct you if you all choose to run the documentary on
your cable channel.

Your Brother,
