Dear Delegate Hodges and others,
As a Virginia citizen, and a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Headquarters Camp #584, and a proud descendant of more than 8 brave Virginians, who served this state as volunteers in the Confederate Army from Virginia, to defend Virginia from invasion by the Northern Federal Army, I officially request your assistance.
Please exercise and take whatever legislative action that is available to you, to require that the management of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, reverse their decision, and to have the Confederate flag be re-installed and flown at the Confederate Chapel in Richmond, Va. daily, as it has been for so many, many years, in respect to our Southern Countrymen at this designated Confederate heritage site.
POLITICAL CORRECTNESS HAS NO STANDING, this flag was flying long before such nonsense existed, and this issue should be corrected.
Will you assist me and many thousands more Virginia citizens, and others that I am not officially representing such as the members of the Virginia Flaggers and others, who are also desiring that this issue be hastily corrected.
THANK YOU, SIR, FOR YOUR EXCELLENT LETTER!
Have you written to your State Legislators? If not, why not take a few minutes and do so? If yes, why not write them again? Use this form to get contact information for your legislators and send a letter TODAY! http://conview.state.va.us/whosmy.nsf/VGAMain?openform
