Founders Day Parade / Savannah / I Am Their Flag
Dear Ms. Lunelle,
On Saturday, March 7, 2020, don in the uniform of the Southern soldier, alongside the Augusta Jane Evans Wilson Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the Sons of Confederate Veterans and members of their families and friends, we would step off in the City of Zephyrhills, Florida’s annual Founders Day Parade.
HK Edgerton “Cuttin’ Up” at Zephyrhills Founders Day Parade – March 7, 2020
All along the parade route, our contingent would be presented with a thunderous ovation (cheers, claps, the Rebel Yell)! In the words of two parade marshals as we exited the restaurant after the parade, “Y’all stole the day!” “Y’all were by far the people’s choice!” It was a great day in Dixie!
I am saddened that the Saint Patrick’s Day in Savannah didn’t work out, and hope that the Sons of Confederate Veterans will invite me again. And, I am saddened at the treatment that the Ladies of the Rose are receiving from those who control the Sons National Re-Union.
I’m pleased to hear that post production of my rendition of Dr. Michael Bradley’s poem, “I Am Their Flag,” is almost finished. The ‘rough cut’ looked so good that, after April 26, 2020, at the Confederate Memorial Day Services in the city cemetery in Marion, Alabama, I only plan to recite it live one more time at the Lee-Jackson in Knoxville, Tennessee. I understand that DVDs will be available for those who are interested.
