We have heard from many folks who are planning to travel to Lexington for Lee-Jackson day this year, many for the first time. This letter received from a supporter was particularly poignant:
Due to your emails about the malcontents who are not pleased with the annual Lee-Jackson Day observances in Lexington, I have determined to do a 4,000 mile round trip from Bozeman, Montana in mid-winter, alone.
I will bring with me a new 3x5 Third National flag, pole with spear and shoulder straps with which to carry and strut my seventy-seven year old bones down Main Street or any other street for that matter.
I reserved a four night stay at the ***** hotel and from there will proceed under the direction of the Virginia Flaggers...
...Being that I am perched so far from the action, I have not once been able to be present when the Virginia Flaggers strike, but this Lexington matter was too much to keep me frozen still."
We are touched by his devotion, inspired by his determination, and look forward to standing with him in Lexington.
